Letters Never Meant to be Read- Writing Contest Update

Hello Letter Writers,

I want to thank you all for participating in this ever-growing contest which ended May 5th. I am very happy to report that we received over 150 submissions. Our judges will be hard at work reading your secrets; letters that include your wonderful memories, your funny moments, and your terrible tragedies. Your love, loss, and life.
The winners of the contest will be announced May 31st, 4pm EST LIVE on the Facebook Page for Letters Never Meant to be Read HERE. Please like and share this page so we can make it a celebratory event. I will read the winning letters and announce EVERYONE who are nominees that will be accepted into Volume III. The 3 winners will receive a check promptly after the contest results are announced.
I will also GO LIVE throughout the month on FB to read letters from VI and VII, laugh, and talk about the project as a whole. I have done this twice already with a fun result.
Speaking of, Volume III will include those who both win the contest, and those who are selected as nominees. For that effort, you will be contacted throughout the summer with contracts, photo requests, bios, and other small items that go into making this great publication. We always respect the privacy of our Letter Writers and will tailor your submissions accordingly. This is a great way to get a “byline” into your credits if you are a budding or established author, which some of you already are.
We are ALWAYS accepting submissions even though the contest is over. 3 or more gets you royalty payments, 1 gets you a free book. Submissions for Volume III ends June 1st.
Besides sending letters, the best way to support this project is to buy the books (I try to make them as cheep as possible), tell your friends, write reviews, and share on your social media of choice.
You can always pal around with me on:
Letters Facebook OR MDX
I will not accept bribes 
Thank you so much for supporting this project with your words and pieces of your soul. It has been my dream for many years and you are making it come true.
For projects past, and this precious book. Let there be many more in our future…

Letters Never Meant to be Read Writing CONTEST!

Rusty Wheels Media is proud to announce the bi-annual Letter Writing Submission Contest! 

Have you ever wanted to write a letter to that guy or gal you brushed up against on the train? How about that lost love or the friend that did you wrong?  The family member who never really saw you? The teacher or boss who declined to see your worth? What about the person you wished you had thanked?  These are letters that the writers had no intention of ever mailing, snail or otherwise.

This collection of salty rants and unspoken melodies has been curated for the entire world to marvel upon. What was an exercise of the utmost fruition has turned into something very real and offers a hard glimpse into the perspective and time of the letter writer.   Writing your letter can be cathartic and freeing.

All letters should tell a story. They can be heartfelt, sarcastic, funny, angry, or revenge in words. Expressions to the world or wondering what could have been can be healthy.  So roll that sacred parchment in an airtight bottle and send it out to sea or burn it over the mantle. Wait…

Send it to us!

1st Place: $200
