$2,100 Essay Contest: Should We Be Grateful?

The Fountain Magazine is now accepting submissions for their 2018 essay contest. This year, they’re asking a simple question: Should we be grateful?

They’re also offer $2,100 in prizes, including a $1,000 grand prize.

The contest is open to all writers worldwide.

According to their contest page:

“That perfect cup of coffee in the morning. Seeing an old friend for the first time in years. A big meal with your family. All of them make us feel grateful – grateful for loved ones and grateful to be alive. Gratitude is an important part of the human experience. And it’s not only for people; animals show gratitude to those who care for them.

The question is: Why do we feel grateful? What should be we grateful for? And even, should we still be grateful when we’re depressed or when our lives are a mess? For this year’s Essay Contest, we want to hear from you. What are you grateful for? Who are you grateful to? Are you grateful? We can’t wait to read your responses.”

The deadline for entering the contest is January 31st, 2019.

Be aware that they reserve the right to publish your essay, even if you don’t win.

The essay must be between 1,500 and 2,500 words in length.
