Attention young writers: You could win a $15,000 scholarship to the Writing & Publishing Program at Walnut Hill School for the Arts. How? Submit your fiction, poetry, or play to The Blue Pencil Online by February 1, 2011 at 12:00 noon EST.
Be sure to read the submission guidelines and follow them exactly. (Note: this is an important step in submitting to any publication or contest. Making sure your document is in 12-point, double-spaced Times New Roman may seem nitpicky, but showing an editor that you can read and follow instructions is the first major step toward getting published.)
Entries for The Blue Pencil are only accepted through the website’s submission manager.
The Writing & Publishing program at Walnut Hill School for the Arts “aims to celebrate the freshest, most accomplished examples of imaginative literary craft by young writers.” In addition to a scholarship, each winner receives a copy of Elizabeth Bishop’s Poems, Prose, and Letters and a chance to read his or her work at the annual spring celebration of the print edition of The Blue Pencil. Prize-winning works are published on The Blue Pencil Online.
