Women Writers Needed for Article Writing Contest: Over $900 in Prizes

Nicole Dean, the Owner of LadyPens, a directory of free content articles written by female authors, celebrates the growth of her directory with an article writing contest.

Nicole Dean – The Lady Pen - announces her article writing contest at to celebrate the recent grow spurt the site has seen. Prizes will be awarded for every 250th article submitted as well as for most articles submitted on a particular day, creativity, humor, innovative idea, and best sales pitch in an article. More prizes will be announced. Visit ladypens for the latest details.

LadyPens is an article directory geared toward women. All articles are written by women and focus on topics female entrepreneurs and business owners are interested in. The site was launched in October and already over 1000 articles have been accepted into the article directory. This fast growth is what inspired Nicole Dean to reward her authors with over $900 in prizes - ranging from LadyPens logo clothing to Marketing Ebooks to parenting books. Even more prizes will be added in the weeks to come.

LadyPens has been well received in the work at home mom community from the start. “This is an article database site where all of the articles are written by women. I love that! I am pretty partial to women written articles so it’s a great new resource.” writes Kelly McCausey, host of Work at Home Moms Talk Radio.
Alice Seba from states, “some topics need a woman's touch, so drop by and pick up some content”.

“LadyPens has grown much quicker than I ever imagined it would. The response has been tremendous. We’ve had over 1000 informative and entertaining articles added to our database in only two months. The rapid growth of LadyPens demonstrates once again just how hard-working and talented these online Businesswomen are,” says Dean, “I am hosting this contest to give incentive to women entrepreneurs to try article writing ( or to stretch their article writing efforts ). Not only will they receive visitors to their websites through their article marketing efforts and establish themselves as experts, they’ll also have the chance to win amazing prizes.”
