February 22, 2010 — Win a grand prize worth $3,000 (200 copies of “Back to Health and Wellness: Feel-Good Stories from the Heart of Chiropractic” when published later this year) in the new Parker Seminars story contest.
Second prize is 80 copies (worth $1,200) and third prize is 40 copies (worth $600). All remaining contest winners will receive five copies of the book (worth $75).
Parker Seminars will award all prizes in exchange for nonexclusive publication rights to the winning stories. No financial commitment or minimum book purchase whatsoever is required to participate in this contest.
After an initial review of all story contest submissions, a group of 200 semi-finalists will be assembled from which a panel of chiropractor story contest judges will choose the winners.
Each contestant is invited to prepare a single, true, chiropractic-related, testimonial-type, short story (1,000 words max), written for an audience of chiropractic patients and prospective patients. Stories should be submitted to Don Dible, Series Editor, DMD House, 29925 Rose Blossom Drive, Murrieta, CA 92563 or e-mailed as an attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org. Story submission deadline is May 1, 2010!
Story preparation in Microsoft Word or Corel Wordperfect and submitted electronically will be much appreciated. At the beginning of your story, be sure to provide full contact information including daytime and evening phone numbers along with your e-mail address. Receipt of all submissions will be acknowledged; no stories will be returned to authors.
Where appropriate, stories that include a touch of humor or tear duct stimulation will be most welcome. (Note that the book will feature a full dozen, professionally-prepared, chiropractic cartoons.)
