VEGAN Short Essay Contest - Enter by Oct 4, 2016




Short ESSAY Contest (400 words or less)

Being a vegan, how do you deal with most people around you being someone who pays for animals to be exploited and killed? How do you handle it? What's your philosophy with non-vegan people, in general? How do you deal with your family and friends who think it is just fine to be non-vegan and as such; one who thinks harming animals is an okay thing to do?

The most helpful answers will be selected and compiled for a special feature on The Vegan Truth blog, and will win a gift copy of the beautifully presented and highly regarded paperback: Why I will ALWAYS be Vegan; 125 Essays from Around the World.

There will be 30 selected essays (and winners).

Please share with the vegan community. Thanks so much. Send your essay (with a title) (your photo and bio - optional), by October 4th, 2016. Send to veganpoet (at sign) hotmail (dot) com
