If you are a high school or college student who writes short stories and poems, then the F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald Museum‘s annual short story and poetry contests are perfect for you. The submissions period is now open for both contests, until December 31. Winners will be selected from both of the divisions.
Among the important guidelines to understand, though contestants may not submit previously published short stories or poems, works that have appeared in school or campus publications may still be submitted. Also, each contestant must identify his or her instructor.
For more information, visit the contest webpage, or you can click on the images to enlarge them. For other inquiries, contact the museum.
This afternoon and evening, Wednesday, September 13 from 3:00 PM until 8:00 PM, Georgia College & State University’s creative writing program will be hosting the Southern Writers Reading in their annual Visiting Writers Series. The series will include an eclectic selection of authors, educational discussions, and public readings. Before the readings begin, the audience will get the opportunity to participate in a Q&A with poet Sean Hill, writer and filmmaker Tina McElroy Ansa, fiction writer Melissa Pritchard, and writer and naturalist Janisse Ray.
