Dennis Buckman said...

Muncher -

Don't know how to approach this. On my web sitedennisbuckman.com each of my art works includes a "narration". One of my recent works however, created "writers block" for me. I decided to open it up to the public, and an holding a "writers/poets" contest to accompany the peice. The winner receives the initial giclee of the peice. There is no entry fee or hidden agenda, other than of course to increase traffic to the site, popularize the site AND give an aspiring writer the opportunity to express themselves....

Thanks for any help you can give. You can also contact me through the web site....

Heya Bookmuncher!

I love your new look! I just wanted to thank you for your monthly lists of contests! =D It is really helpful! I also just saw a competition on Sarah Dessen's site for a lock and key necklace! But, the problem is that the random drawing will be held on or about April 21st which doesn't give people very much time! Thanks again!
