A HOLIDAY GIFT FROM MANA TO CONTEST ENTRANTS
In the spirit of the season, MANA offers every full-fee entrant a free book. Yes, the entrant can choose any book from the Children's section of the MANA Online Store. That is MANA's holiday gift! Now, if an entrant prefers that MANA donates the book to a favorite library, MANA will give the gift to that library.
No, nothing is really for free. However, participation in the 2010 MANA HOLIDAY WRITERS' CONTEST is as close to free as one can get. All that is required is that good writing talent be shared. It can't get any easier or better than that!
HAPPY HOLIDAYS from MANA!
