There are a total of 1,710 members of the Florida Writers Association (FWA). Ninety-seven of the members are young adults. Every year the FWA sponsors a writing contest. This year the title of the collection book is Writers @ Work. The cover appears above. I’m happy to announce both my poem and my husband Barry Dimick’s short story will be among the sixty works selected for the collection. The book will be available on the FWA website in October.

Are you a writer? This contest is a perfect road to publication. Every year there is a different theme. I’ll announce next year’s theme when it becomes available in October. Keep writing!
