Here are some details about the contest:
"Write an essay or memoir that catches our eye, touches our heart, or tickles our funny bone, and you could win one of our great prizes! Only original, unpublished works of 1,000 to 1,200 words will be accepted.
The Writer, in collaboration with Gotham Writers’ Workshop, invites writers to enter The Writer 2011 Essay/Memoir Contest with guest judge Lee Gutkind.
• Second Place: $300 (USD); enrollment in a four-week How to Get Published seminar taught online by a literary agent and Gotham Writers’ Workshop ($150 value); publication on WriterMag.com; and a one-year subscription to The Writer."
