In keeping with the FolkHeart Press' mission to encourage people to write their own family folktales, this writing competition provides an opportunity for writers to submit an essay about one dad in their lives whose adventures in the kitchen or at the bbq makes him a folkhero. Dad can be relative, best friend, or community member.
Entrants will be asked to post their essay on their blogs or websites.
