Chicago, IL (PRWEB) December 24, 2008
Heading into 2009, Demockracy Magazine is holding its annual writing competition with a focus on the challenges facing the incoming Obama administration.
Running until January 2, 2009, the winning writer will be rewarded a cash award as well as an opportunity to have his or her work published in front of thousands of readers. For those who are interested in launching a writing career, this contest is a prime opportunity to get your work distributed to leading policy makers and journalists.
This year's contest will focus on the challenges and possibilities for government reform over the next four years. In the context of the current economic crisis, the likes of which the world has not seen since the 1930s, the 44th President will have to balance a wide set of new policy priorities. From the efforts to reform national health care under incoming Secretary of Health and Human Services, Tom Daschle, to the foreign policy issues facing Defense Secretary Robert Gates and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, many leading policy experts believe that the decisions made over the next four years will have the most profound effect of any in recent memory.
The site has developed a wide following in policy circles for its coverage of both national and world affairs, drawing on the work of writers from across the globe. As part of the online journal's efforts to expand, the annual writer's competition provides an opportunity to become a regular contributor and editor for the site. "We are excited to announce this year's essay topic," said Kevin Van Dyke, the journal's Editor. "Based upon the interest we have received thus far and our plans for future growth, it is a great venue for aspiring writers to launch their careers."
