Attention all Poets!
In Print is holding several writing contests this year!! From now until February 28th, we are taking poetry submissions.
Sharpen those pencils, grab your ballpoint pens and a clean tablet of paper and find a quiet place to write.
Are there prizes, you ask? Of course there are! Good question! The prizes are as follows: $75 for first place, $50 for second place, and $25 for third place. In cold, hard cash. Not only that, you will get recognition at the In Print meetings, on our website, and in our newsletters.
Winners of the poetry contest will be announced at our April 13th meeting, where local poet Christine Swanberg will be our special guest.
If you are a member of the wonderful writing group In Print, there is a $20 per fee piece, which includes judges’ feedback on your musings.
If you are not a member of In Print, the fee is still $20 per piece, but no judges’ feedback…unless, of course, you decide that In Print is a splendid writing group to join. You would be write. Er, right. When you join you not only get judges’ feedback but all the valuable benefits In Print offers.
We are holding two other writing contests this year. One is the non-fiction writing contest. Submissions for that are accepted May 1 through June 30 with winners announced on August 10, and the fiction contest accepts submissions from September 1 through October 31, with winners announced at the December 14th meeting.
In Print has a panel of 5 qualified judges to read and critique submissions, and of course declare first, second, and third place.
