Fall Writing Contest Open for Students

September 21, 2018 | Campus News

Are you a talented storyteller? Until Tuesday, October 30, current ECC students can submit their stories and/or essays to the Annual ECC English Department’s Fiction and Creative Non-Fiction Writing Contest.

“We received amazing entries every year,” said English instructor Josh Stroup. “I feel it is extremely important our students get a real audience to read their work, not just family or friends. We should celebrate writing, and this contest does just that.”

Each student is allowed a maximum of three entries, and each entry must be no longer than 20 pages.

Additionally, submissions should be in size 12 Times New Roman font and single spaced. Please include a cover sheet with your name, phone number, email, mailing address and entry titles. As for individual stories or essays, only the title in a header is needed. Entries should be submitted as a Microsoft Word attachment to Joshua.Stroup@eastcentral.edu.

Winners will be announced via email on November 16. First prize is $100, second prize is $50 and third prize is $25.
