Healthy Eating Writing Contest!

Did you know that writing is good for you? Writing is a great way to relieve stress, come up with great new ideas, and it can be really fun! Additionally, fiction can be an excellent tool to help convey health information or motivate behavior changes in a way that pure facts and statistics can't.

Ready to stretch your writing skills a little bit? We have a fiction writing contest coming down the pike complete with prizes and a chance to have your work showcased on our blog. We don't have all of the details worked out yet, but we wanted to share what we have so far so that you can start working on your story.

Here are the rules of the contest:
1. You must write a fiction story that addresses and promotes the topic of healthy eating
2. Your story must be at least 1,000 words long and no longer than 5,000 words.
3. You must include a leprechaun and a monkey in your story. (You didn't think we could be completely serious, did you?)
4. Make it lighthearted or humorous, if you can, but in good taste.
5. The contest is open to anyone 18 or older.

So, let your mind get creative! Have a little fun talking about something healthy!
