The [Grow] Network Has an Amazing Non-Fiction Writing Contest with More than $2,097 in Combined Prizes
The [Grow] Network is sponsoring a public writing contest. The purpose of the contest is to gather a collection of the most useful, simple, and effective techniques for producing, preparing, and preserving your own food and medicine. We live in times when producing your own food and medicine is increasingly necessary for good health and food security, and we want to facilitate the sharing of information between people who are growing their own food and attempting to live sustainable lifestyles.
You can see a listing of the most recent writing contest entries here – Writing Contest Entries.
Contest entries are judged by Marjory Wildcraft and the editorial staff of the [Grow] Network. Prizes are awarded at the end of each contest. Several factors are taken into consideration in judging, including:
Contest entries that have useful and detailed information on practical techniques that are truly sustainable and useful during grid-down situations will be given greater consideration.
Authenticity and real ‘dirt time’ are what we value. Post only things you have tried yourself or have actually seen others do successfully. Avoid topics that “might work,” or “should work,” or “I heard this will work.”
Be absolutely sure that what you write is accurate. People’s time, and lives, may be affected by what you present.
The greater community of the [Grow] Network will be encouraged to vote on the contest entries. The collective rankings based on community voting will have an impact on judging the winners. More importantly, rankings help our users find the most useful information on our site.
