So excited to get this book in the mail!!!
It’s my third time published through this competition by Melaleuca Blue Publishing for life writing. The first year I was shortlisted. The second year I was highly commended, coming in third place, and winning $50. And this third year I was commended.
This book is about what we really learnt at school. I shared a life lesson that my school years were teaching me all along about being ourselves. The title of my piece: ‘Share Your Story.’
I love what the editor is doing with her publishing company and with life writing. She inspires me in my own writing and publishing journey as I am a lover of life writing and the sharing of stories. I also would love to start my own publishing company and run writing competitions. I guess I’m kind of already making steps towards this with the books I’m already publishing.
I definitely recommend submitting to writing competitions. The feedback has been so valuable. It’s helped me have confidence in myself as a writer, and I love building connections with fellow writers.
