Buy a ream of paper, slap a fresh ink cartridge into your printer,
grab your dictionary, and lock yourself in the den - it is time to enter
Golfer's Dream Magazine Second Annual Writing Contest.
We will publish the winner's story in our spring
issue. And think of
all the recognition you will get. The rules are simple. The story must
have a golf theme, but the time frame is purely up to the writer. Anyone
is eligible to enter, except Golfer's Dream Magazine employees and
members of their families, Golfer's Dream Magazine members, anyone not
having a clue about the game of golf or anyone that places family,
friends, job, or breathing higher in importance than golf. Anyone that
has played 63 or more holes of golf in one day are also not eligible. We
love the game but that would indicate you have gone beyond loving the
game - you're just crazy - see a doctor! Other rules are:
Entries must be original, unpublished, and not longer than 10,000
Manuscripts must be typed and double-spaced, with the full title
of the story and the page number at the top of each page. The pages
should be bound with a paper clip. No staples, please! We just hate
getting our fingers cut. Minor typing errors should be corrected
with a pencil, not a pen or correction fluid. Pages should not
contain coffee stains, smudges, doodling or any other indication
that you are not serious about your effort. Pages cannot contain
offensive language or jokes but if you want to share a good joke
with us you can include it on a separate piece of paper that is
double-spaced, titled and containing no smudges or anything that
might rub off and get our secretary's hands dirty. Spelling errors
will not be tolerated. Your entry will be returned by our courier,
Tony Footinyourtailo! He's mean and we don't feed him often enough.
And when we use his services he always tries to make a huge effort
to impress us. Computers have spell-check, so use it!
Please Note: If you want to ignore the previous rule, just submit
your entry on a disk or e-mail your entry to .
Include your name, address, telephone number and the full title of
the story on a separate piece of paper. Each story will be judged
anonymously, so do not put your name on the manuscript itself.
Include a self-addressed envelope with sufficient postage with
your entry if you want it returned.
Entries must be postmarked by midnight March 15,
