Calling out to all writers and bloggers who would like to be featured for the month of February! The Ink Owl will be once again taking submissions from guest bloggers and writers to be featured throughout the month of February. (Let’s see how many times I can reword that statement.) Anyway, I always call February the “Month of Love” because it’s never a lovely month to me. I feel like I always end up slogging through the month with all the gray melting snow and bare trees. But not this year!
This year I’d like to shake things up with a new challenge, one that will hopefully test your limits as a writer. This month I would like submissions to be about self-love. Not self-obsession, narcissism, or conceitedness, but actual, genuine self-love.
As defined by Merriam-Webster online dictionary self love is: regard for one’s own well-being and happiness.
I would like guest writers to compose a piece that is about having self-love or compassion for themselves.
This piece can be in poetry form, journal entry, or letter form but must be addressed to you, yourself, the writer.
As always there is a limit of 50 to 1700 words.
You can submit your piece to this email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Submissions will close on February 1st. (I usually end up extending it.)
You’re probably scratching your head, or at the least scrolling through to someone else’s post, but I hope you stop and consider participating. I think each of us could use a little more compassion for ourselves, and we learn best by doing.
