Nov. 30 is the deadline for mothers to submit their entries in the "Letters From the Heart" writing contest — letters from mothers to their daughters, stepdaughters, daughters-in-law, and adopted, unborn or deceased daughters.

The most original and poignant letters will be featured in the upcoming book, "Dear Daughter, On the Day You Were Born." Prizes range from $1,000 to other cash and gifts. Rules and an online entry form are available at
