If you are like most writers, you have made a resolution to submit often in 2012. Here is a contest out of Hibbing, Minnesota, that is getting national attention. It is a no fee contest (those are the kind I like the best) and the deadline is March 1. I know a few people who have won or placed in this contest. If your work is chosen, it will be a wonderful addition to your resume and you might win the $100 prize! Thank you Hope Clark for this call-out.
