Living Springs Publisher are also accepting submissions for our Sightseer Saga contest. The contest is open to any adult. This contest will be a little different. We are not going to set a deadline. We will accept submissions until we have 100 entries. The entry fee is $25. The word count for this contest is 900 – 4000 words. The topic for the Sightseer Saga contest is a story based on your travel – beyond that it is open. Tell us about an experience you had, sights you saw and/or  people you met. Make it a completely true account, or embellish the truth a bit.
