Horse story writing contest

A fellow writer, knowing my horse rescue story and my love of horses, notified me of this writing contest: the 2008 Angel Horses with a Mission True Story Contest.

Excerpted from the writing guidelines:

The Angel Animals Network (AAN) is accepting story submissions about horses who demonstrates what it means and how fulfilling it is to have a life’s purpose and/or a horse who performs some time of physical, emotional, or spiritual services for you or others.

Stories must be original, based on real horses, people, and events.

The guidelines mention that winners and runners-up will be considered for publication in a book they'll be publishing next year. When I asked how that worked, they said publication in the book is a completely separate thing from the contest. From what I understand, you can enter and win the contest, but it's still up to you whether you want your story to be published in the book — you're not automatically giving them publication rights by entering the contest.

There is no submission fee, and you can submit up to three different stories, so have fun!
