We’re celebrating the holidays this year by toasting to our local authors!
This year, to commemorate the busy holiday season – with Christmas, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, Winter Solstice, the New Year, and more – we want to read YOUR stories!
Our 2021 theme is: holidays, winter, family traditions and celebrations, and more. We accept fiction, non-fiction, prose, poetry – all formats are welcome for submission.
We will be compiling the top submissions into a holiday/winter-themed e-zine, to be distributed electronically to WANL’s membership base – now boasting almost 450 members… That’s almost 1,000 eyes reading your work!
In this e-zine, WANL will print five stories, with prizes for the top submissions:
1st Place: $125
2nd Place: $100
3rd Place: $75
Our two runners-up will receive $50 each.
– Limited to one entry per person.
– Entries, regardless of format, can be a maximum of 500 words.
– Poets can submit more than one poem, up to 500 words.
– All identifying markers will be removed from entries, to be submitted to a jury who will select the top readings.
– Contest is open to WANL Members only.
Submit your stories to firstname.lastname@example.org, using the subject line “Winter E-Zine.”
Deadline for entries: 5 p.m. on December 10, 2021.
The e-zine will be released digitally on Tibb’s Eve Eve (December 22, 2021).
