I’m really moved by Lisa McMann, YA author of Wake and the forthcoming Fade, and her recent announcement of the Fund Your Dreams Essay Contest.  Inspired by her own challenging childhood and path to college (you can read her story here), McMann and her publisher Simon and Schuster are sponsoring a writing contest where the winner will receive $1000 to further his or her life goals.  To be considered, applicants must answer the question “What is the greatest obstacle you’ve ever overcome?” in 500 words or less.  Contest starts today and the deadline for entries is March 6, 2009.  For the official rules and more information, visit Lisa McMann’s website.  Good luck, and happy holidays!!
