Where will your journey take you....?

“The art of writing is the art of applying the seat of the pants to the seat of the chair,” claimed 20th century American writer Mary Heaton Vorse.

If you’re a writer – or you want to be – then the time has come to adopt Heaton Vorse’s credo as your own because, yes, it’s writing contest season.

Start thinking about this year’s contest theme: A Journey. Let your imagination wander. Feel the creative energy start to flow.

Then apply the seat of the pants to the seat of the chair, and write!

  1. I would like to say that without proper activities each and every student will not be able to uncover a wide variety of sources on a given topic for his or her college. Just the lucky ones who pay this writing company will get student research papers down this site done in accordance to absolutely correct educational standards and theories. It has a great practical value as it gathers consistent materials and precise data for any analysis or overview.
