Writing Contests and Publications!

Please see the links below for more information about writing contests.  Be sure to read ALL instructions carefully.  Remember to check for deadlines and ensure that you have time to fully draft, edit and revise your work prior to the due date.  This is an excellent opportunity for you to publish you work, the last and most coveted step of the writing process.  Take advantage of these opportunities, take a chance and good luck!

It is also a good idea to seek out a faculty adviser, it does not necessarily need to be myself, it could be any teacher whose judgment and criticism you value.  Please see me if you need any help or guidance.
