Writing Contest: Fire and Ice

Here's the information for the Chicago-North Fire and Ice Contest. A few years ago, one of my manuscripts was a finalist in this writing contest and I'd learned quite a bit from the judges--good things!--that strengthened my writing skills. That was my experience, of's all subjective. But I did like this contest very much. :)

Good Luck!!
