Write Side Up—You'd better rent yourself a cabin in the woods and finish off that masterpiece you keep telling everyone about. It's time once again for SouthWest Writers' annual writing contest. This year, they're offering 19 different categories, including a new one for work written in Spanish. The competition is open to anyone and everyone. All you need is a pulse, along with a deep-rooted lust for literary glory.
The first-, second- and third-place winners in each category will receive cash prizes. First-place winners automatically get entered into a competition for the yearly $1,000 Storyteller Award. The deadline for all entries is May 1. Details about entry forms, fees, categories and anything else you can think of are located at www.southwestwriters.org. You can also call 265-9485 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
