Registration went live two weeks, and we already have 170 women registered! It's going to be a life-changing weekend.
But this post isn't just to announce that registration is open. Oh no, there's so much more! I have the honor, privilege and joy to give away one full-paid scholarship. Before I give you the details, I want to recognize and honor the man who is donating the scholarship: Cecil Murphey.
Cecil is the author and co-author of over 100 books, he pours his life into ministering to others through his writing and by mentoring writers. Please visit his site to learn more: http://www.cecilmurphey.com/. Cec also sends out great writing tips and advice through his writer's blog: http://www.cecmurpheyswritertowriter.blogspot.com/. Please take a few minutes and learn more about Cecil Murphey (and his awesome assistant Twila Belk who is a P31 supporter and will be at She Speaks this year ... we love this lady!).
Here's what the scholarship includes:
- A packed schedule.
- 2 nights in the hotel, based on double occupancy (sharing a room with another attendee).
- All conference meals and material.
- Free Internet service in the room.
What's not included:
• Transportation to the event
• Extra nights
• Private room
• Pre-conference seminars
How to win:
Since I get to choose the winner and the conditions for this scholarship, I've decided to hold a writing contest. To enter, all you have to do is submit an article that would be suitable for publishing in the P31 Woman magazine. You can read the writer's guidelines here. Submissions must adhere to our word limit of 1000 words.
You'll have until Friday, March 25th at midnight PST, to submit your article. Then, we will take a week to review them and announce the winner on April 1st on my blog. To submit, please send them to Janet Burke, my assistant editor, at Janet@Proverbs31.org. The winning submission will also be printed in the magazine, as well as some honorable mentions.
Some other rules:
• Submit only one article.
• Please don't send a link to a blog post.
• Put your submission in a Word document or pasted into the body of an email.
• A word of advice, very few blog posts translate well into magazine articles. Please make sure your submission follows standard magazine style.
• Read some of our archived feature articles to get a feel for our style.
If writing isn't your thing, we've got other scholarships to give away. Visit Lysa TerKeurst's blog to find out who is else is holding a contest.
And finally, we'll send out a confirmation email when we receive your article. If you have any questions, please ask Janet as I'll be with my family on a Spring Break vacation through March 19th. Or hold your questions and ask me after that.
In His Love,
