Outdoor Life's 2006 Ultimate Adventure Contest

So here I am back at the blog. And I've found an interesting contest with a March 1 deadline. There's no entry fee (too bad I didn't locate this before the January update of our Guide to No-Cost Literary Contests and Competitions.)

Anyway, the 2006 Ultimate Adventure Contest seeks "your wildest hunting tale, craziest fishing adventure or the most hair-raising survival experience you've ever had (in 750-1,000 words) and we'll see which writer captures the spirit of spine-tingling adventure best." The winning piece will be published in Outdoor Life, and its author will receive $500. Runners-up will have their entries published on the magazine's Web site.

You can submit via e-mail or postal mail. Just be sure to submit by March 1.

I found this blog during a word search for "outdoor writing" today. This is a nice blog with lots of good information for the practicing writer.

To be honest, I was actually trying to see if the bots had found my new blog, Aspen Outdoors (, yet. Aspen Outdoors is targeted specifically to outdoor communicators as a forum for craft improvement, story ideas and networking.

If you're visiting this blog and have an interest in oudoor writing, please check out Aspen Outdoors as well.
