publication opportunities

Current Opportunities:

The Washington Coalition for an Open Government is facilitating a High School Essay Contest. This year, they are asking entrants to write a 500-700 essay responding to the following question: “Why do Washington citizens need the Open Public Meetings Act and the Public Records Act, and how would government be different if we did not have them?” The winner will receive $1000.

Please click on this link to find more information about the competition. The deadline is April 19th.

Past Opportunities:

Tacoma Gallery Reading Opportunity: Send in poems that will be considered for a reading at the Tacoma Community College’s The Gallery. Your poems may also be included in a forthcoming chapbook. The submission deadline is February 28, 2013

Tacoma Public Library 90 Second Newbery Competition. The submission deadline is February 9th. Many red ties will remember creating their 90 second Newbery films during 9th grade English. Consider submitting it! Consider making a new one, too!

Bennington College Young Writer’s Competition in poetry, fiction, and nonfiction. The submission deadline is November 1st.

Name an Asteroid! Not the typical publication opportunity that I plan to post on here, but really, how often do you receive the opportunity to name an asteroid? Go for it. If I were eligible to submit, I’d say “MELMAC.” Are there any ALF fans out there? The deadline is December 2, 2012.

National Novel Writing Month: for the third year in a row, students from Annie Wright School are participating in National Novel Writing Month. You should take part, as well!
