Lone Star Writing Contest deadline nears

Gee, I'm a member of the Northwest Houston RWA Chapter, and I nearly forgot to post this reminder they sent out about their annual writing contest. The LONE STAR WRITING COMPETITON is the real deal. The final judge is an editor, and winners and finalists have gone on to publication.

June 4 is the deadline for the 15th annual LONE STAR WRITING COMPETITON.

Here's their reminder.
