MANA Valentine’s Day Celebration

“What this world needs now is love, sweet love.”

The lyrics to that song are most appropriate for these times. One thing is for sure. No matter one’s political perspective, one factor is most certain: Most people love at least one person.

And that is what MANA would like its readers to celebrate during this upcoming Valentine’s Day.

There is much power in the word. Saying and writing that one loves another is very powerful. That is why people take their time and read and purchase Valentine’s Day cards. And this is what I, the Owner of MANA, did when the husbands of my aunts passed. Yes, I missed sending these cards to my uncles; I did not want to miss letting my aunts receive a Valentine’s Day card from me, letting them know how much I loved them. Furthermore, I decided to do the same for my parents. Thus, when my aunts and parents passed, I regretted their passing, but I knew I had let them know in so many ways my love for them. I would not miss special occasions to reiterate my love for them, for example Valentine’s Day.

Now, MANA, being in business for twenty years, has a primary focus—the encouragement of writers to write.
So, for those of you who love to write, MANA is wanting to celebrate this upcoming Valentine’s Day month by your sharing your love of the most special people in your life.

You can submit a poem or short story about love, for significant others or family members. It would be a literary greeting “card.” You can write a poem or short story with love as its theme. The poem or short story can be about the love between parent and child, grandparent/s and grand, aunt/uncle and niece/nephew, or significant others. 

Submit your poem (no more than 250 words) and short story (no more than 500 words). MANA has designated Covenant House, an organization that supports homeless youngsters as its charity for 2022. MANA will donate $2 for every work submitted.

Thus, your literary greeting will express your love to the special people in your lives. Also, it will spread the love to those you may not personally know.

Submit your Word file:
Submission begins today and ends  February 7, 2022.

HAPPY Valentine’s Day from the company that lives its motto: MANA—More Than Just A Self-Publishing Company”
