ARCR (the Association of Residents of Costa Rica - ARCR.net) bi-monthly newsletter El Residente, is conducting a WRITING CONTEST! Open to all, we are
looking for stories of people's experiences in Costa Rica
Aspiring writer? Have a Blog? Written letters to folks back home? Got a short, unpublished piece you wrote that you didn't know what to do with? Send it in! Humorous, tragic, or just stories about daily experiences are all acceptable.
You don't need to be an excellent writer. Just tell us your tale and if it wins we'll make sure it's well told. (All submissions published will be subject to editing for length and content to meet space requirements.)
There is no limit on the number of submissions, so if you have more than one story to tell, send them all in (separately, please.)
All submissions become the property of ARCR which may publish them at their discretion. Announcement of the Winner will be made in the Jan. / Feb 2013 issue of El Residente. The Winner will be notified via email.
Achieve fame, fortune, and possible immortality! Send in your piece NOW while you are thinking of it!
