"Field Report"--Encouragement to Write!

I just heard about an interesting new site called Field Report, where they publish people's non-fiction. Then they hold contests where they give fairly hefty cash prizes for the best writing. It's a really interesting idea, and I think it could be a great way for fledgling writers to get their work out there.

I like anything that encourages people to write.

If you want a taste of some really good writing that appeared on the site, read the essay by the first contest winner, Murr Brewster, who, it would appear, is a postal worker with a heart of gold and a way with words. It's really good.

I think this could even encourage me to write...

What an interesting concept at Field Report. It's nice to have different ways to consider publishing our work. Thanks for sharing!
