First In Print Writing Contest

Ready…. set……submit!

Announcing the In Print 1st Annual Writing Contest! Submissions are being accepted now thru June 10, 2012. One $100 prize will be awarded for the winning piece in each category (fiction, nonfiction, and poetry). Entry fee is $10 per submittal ($15/nonmembers) with winners being announced at our August 11 meeting. Poet Christine Swanberg, Rockford College Creative Writing Professor Michael Perry, and Mike Doyle of the Rockford Register Star have agreed to judge the entries.

Contest details: The subject must be about writing, whether you choose to write about a specific writer, a group of writers or writing in general, it doesn’t matter as long as it’s about writing. Each submission of fiction or nonfiction must be no more than 1000 words. Each poetry submittal must be 30 lines or less. Each submission must include a title page with your name and contact information. Do not put your name on your actual submission. Feel free to submit more than one piece, but be sure to include the entry fee and a separate title page for each piece you submit. Send submissions, plus entry fee, to In Print, Writing Contest, P.O. Box 2146, Loves Park, IL, 61130.
