The NEW BOE BLOG SHOWCASE
BOE = Behind Our Eyes
Where to Find them?
Perhaps you have not yet heard of Behind Our Eyes, Inc. ?
It is an organization that hosts a writers group, specifically for writers with disabilities.
I’d like to take this opportunity to share the website for the group.
The page containing blog listings from our members is now posted on the group’s website.
The direct link is: https://www.behindoureyes.org/wp/blog-showcase/
Do you know about Magnets & Ladders?
It is a literary magazine of Active Voices by writers with disabilities.
If you are a writer who has a disability, you may be interested in finding out more about the opportunities provided. I’ve been a member for a number of years. I am a published author and writer who has significant sight loss. But, the great thing is that our disabilities do not define us and cannot keep us from being active in the craft that we love.
In addition to the website, there is a writing opportunity 2 times a year to send work to the Magnets & Ladders Literary Publication for consideration. The website for the organization gives information and guidelines you can read about how you can enter your writing for this magazine. Click here for guidelines.
BONUS: CASH AWARDS in Each Category. Enter NOW.
For the Spring/Summer issue this year – 2019 – there is an additional opportunity for writers who have a focus on Nature and the Outdoors. The contest will award a $50 cash award for the best poem in this category. This contest is a memorial award in honor of the group’s late member, Ernest Jones, who died last year. Ernie served on the board and was an active member of BOE for a number of years.
Visit the guidelines and learn more about how you can enter your work! But hurry, the deadline is coming up in mid-February.
It is free – no charge to enter your work for either competition.
WAIT – There is MORE…
Behind Our Eyes has published 2 anthologies.
The first Behind Our Eyes Anthology came out in 2007.
The second anthology is
Behind Our Eyes: A Second Look – Click here for more information.
The THIRD ANTHOLOGY is now in process:
Behind Our Eyes: A Literary Sunburst
produced by DLD Books – scheduled for publication in early 2019.
The latest addition to the BOE Website is the BLOG SHOWCASE. All BOE members who write blogs are featured on this SHOWCASE, if they choose to be listed.
Be sure to visit the website and visit the blogs on the page.
I think you will enjoy it very much. When you visit a blog, make sure you leave a comment so the blogger knows you were there. That means a lot!
