The Life and Times of Poopwa Foley

we LOVE contests!

Posted on: April 13, 2012

You’re a good writer.  You know it.  Anyone who’s read your work knows it.  Have you been thinking of entering a contest to prove to the world that you can write a winning short story?
Here’s a wonderful opportunity for you.  The In Print writer’s group is holding their 1st annual writing contest.  Your short story has to be 1000 words or less; poetry needs to be 30 lines or less, and the only other requirement is that your story or poetry must be something about writing…an author, a group, or perhaps how you beat writer’s block. 
Will there be prizes?  You betcha…there will be one $100 winner for each category.  The deadline is June 10th, and the winners will be announced at the August 11th In Print meeting. 
It’s $10 for members and $15 for non members.  Checks should be made payable to In Print and sent to PO Box 2146, Loves Park, IL 61132.  Make sure each submission you send in contains your entry fee, a cover letter with your name and contact information, and your story or poetry.
Do you have lots of stories you’d like to submit?  That’s fine; just be sure to include a separate $10 or $15 fee and a cover page with each story.
We have three distinguished judges who will be judging in three categories:  fiction, non fiction, and poetry. 
You know you’re a good writer.  Time to let everyone else know!
Questions?  Call Kristin Oakley, President of In Print, at 815-275-9226.
