A writing contest for librarians!
Smart Poodle Publishing has announced a writing contest for a 1,500 word (or less) essay on "What I wish everyone knew about librarians." The company states: "Smart Poodle Publishing knows that librarians can make a world of difference in the lives of readers everywhere from every age and at every reading level! We feel that librarians are sometimes under appreciated or misunderstood. Now is your chance to speak out by entering our contest." Three winners will get prizes of $50, $100, or $150.
Potentially excellent PR. I'm sure some of our friends and relatives would like to take a try at that topic!
