Are you a Renegade?

Folks, July 1 is coming up fast, and we want to make sure you get your chance at 500 buckaroos and assorted swag by entering our publisher's "Ultimate Renegade" Freelance Writer Contest.

Entering the contest costs nothing -- well, except time. One "Ultimate Renegade" and two runners up will be chosen. The Ultimate Renegade will win:

* $500 cash
* Free entry into Linda Formichelli's Eight-Week Write for Magazines E-Course, including one-on-one consultation time with Linda.
* A Signed Special Second Edition Copy of The Renegade Writer: A Totally Unconventional Guide to Freelance Writing Success.
* A signed copy of Linda and Diana's new book, The Renegade Writer's Query Letters That Rock, coming out this fall.
* A complete set of Marion Street Press books for writers and word lovers.
* A cool gold-plated pen and pencil set.

The two runners up will win the same package, except the cash.

How do you enter?

Write a quick essay about your renegade writer lifestyle, including info about rules you've broken and how breaking those rules helped your career. Feel free to mention broken rules from The Renegade Writer, or rules not found in the book. Email your essay and your snail mail address to Renegade Writer publisher Ed Avis at Then get back to your renegade writing ways!

The deadline is July 1, 2006. Winners will be announced September 1, 2006.

Dang, I like to think that I am a bit of a Renegade, but I am still in the beginning stages of my career (and not making much money), so I doubt there would be much of an essay there.
