Member-Sponsored Spring Equinox Contest
|Deadline:||Mar 31, 2013|
The spring equinox is one of the four great solar festivals of the year. Day and night are equal, poised and balanced, but about to tip over to the side of light. The spring equinox is sacred to dawn, youth, the morning star and the east. Just as the dawn is the time of new light, so the vernal equinox is the time of new life.
To enter this contest, write a story or poem of between 100 and 2500 words in any genre depicting the theme of the vernal equinox.
Winners have been announced! Log in to see them.
