What you do: write a short story based loosely on the fairytale of Beauty and the Beast and send it to Anne Elisabeth, along with a $10 fee.
What Anne Elisabeth does: picks five of the Beauty and the Beast stories, puts them together as a novella collection titled Five Enchanted Roses, and publishes it Summer 2015.
So yes, there it is. A chance to have your writing published, :) I participated in Anne Elisabeth's first writing contest like this… only it was a Cinderella short story. I wrote a story entitled A Dream Not Imagined, and had a lot of fun! No, my story didn’t get picked, but it was a great experience anyway! If you want to learn more about this collection, Five Glass Slippers, then visit http://www.rooglewoodpress.com/titles-coming-soon or https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/20686206-five-glass-slippers?from_search=true.
Anyway, now another contest is underway... and the cover is gorgeous, isn't it? :) I think I’ll enter again, for fun if not for the hope of being picked this time! :) If you are a writer, and are interested, I suggest you visit Anne Elisabeth’s blog or http://www.rooglewoodpress.com/fairy-tale-collections and check it out. The stories need to be around 5,000-20,000 words… so it’s not like you have to write up a whole novel!!
So yes, this is just a fun and exciting opportunity! Join the crowd and start writing a Beauty and the Beast retelling! :) :)
