Students, congratulations on being done with finals! Now it is time to enjoy your three weeks of freedom. Here are a couple of ideas about how to keep your minds turning and your fingers typing.
Chapbook Contest 2014 is underway. This is an excellent time to relax and write 10-20 pages of prose, poetry or a hybrid.
The Chapbook Champion will receive $100, have a small print run of your book and be the featured reader at the annual Script reading.
Deadline is Friday, February 7 at 5 p.m.
When submitting to the English front desk, please don’t put your name on the manuscript, rather attach name, major and contact info on a separate sheet. There is no entry fee and multiple entries are permitted.
This year’s guest judge will be Esther Lee, award-winning author and poet. For more information, contact Annie Stillar [email@example.com].
Laura’s List is still accepting submissions!
In celebration of over 35 years of Laura Bloxham’s Summer Reading List, Whitworth University’s Department of English invites contributions for a single-volume publication titled Laura’s List, forthcoming April 2014.
Submissions should be brief (100-250 words), and they should explore significant reading experiences with titles from Laura’s lists or from your own selections. To contribute, email submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Deadline is Wednesday, January 15.
For questions, contact Jessica Weber, Editor [email@example.com], or Pamela Corpron Parker, Chair, Department of English [firstname.lastname@example.org].
