Announcing our 2024 Lent/Easter Contest

The Lenten season is near and dear to my heart, and God has met me in meaningful and personal ways so many times during Lent. I was so encouraged by the interest and participation in the Christmas contest that I decided to run another contest for Easter/Lent.

So this is your invitation to send Lent- and Easter-related essays to my email address, emarietrotter AT gmail DOT com.

Submissions are due Wednesday, February 7th, and can be original compositions or taken from a personal blog or personal newsletter (we won’t be reposting from collective blogs). Winners will be notified on Saturday, February 10th.

Please include your preferred bio and name/pen name with your submission.

And if you’re looking for a Lent devotional for this year, I just ordered this one from Bradley Bell and Nathan Sloan over at Upstream Collective. I’ve linked to Upstream’s work in the past and really appreciate their contributions to the missions space.

I’m looking forward to reading your Lent and Easter essays.
