it’s your choice…

July 1, 2015

Whatcom Writes!Once again, it’s time to start thinking about your submission to Whatcom WRITES!

Each year, Whatcom County, Washington, selects a book for Whatcom READS! that will be read and discussed at libraries and in book groups throughout the region, culminating with local appearances by the author. The 2016 title is A Tale for the Time Being: A Novel, by Ruth Ozeki.

In conjunction with Whatcom READS!, Whatcom WRITES! takes a theme from the book and invites writers to submit a poem, fiction, or nonfiction work (800 word limit). Whatcom READS! will publish an anthology of the top entries received, based on originality, design and creativity, demonstrated writing skills, and appropriateness to contest theme. Winning writers will also be invited to read portions of their work at Village Books on Sunday, December 13, 2015.

This year’s theme is CHOICES and the deadline for submissions is October 9, 2015. Find out more about Whatcom WRITES! including a link where you can download a flyer.

Thanks to Susan J. Erickson for the heads up!

    Judy, just came upon your blog today via Paul Nelson’s August Poetry Postcard Fest and your summary of last year’s event. I am so impressed by your blog! It’s the most sophisticated one I’ve ever seen: links, sharing opportunities, archives, connections, graphics — all wonderful!
