In November, The Nature of Words, a literature based non-profit serving the High Desert region of the Northwest, will begin accepting entries in poetry, fiction, literary non-fiction and nature writing for the 2012 Rising Star Creative Writing Competition. The Nature of Words aims to foster appreciation of the literary arts through a variety of programs for students and adults. Their programs include an annual literary festival in November featuring readings by acclaimed authors, Words Without Walls, a creative writing in the schools program, The Storefront Project offering drop in creative writing workshops to students, and the Rising Star Competition.
The Rising Star Competition gives The Nature of Words a chance to celebrate the young authors in the community. The contest is open to students 19-25, and the winners in each category will be honored at the Rising Star Competition Award Ceremony, invited to the literary festival in November where they will get to attend a workshop with a guest author, published in the Nature of Words Anthology and will receive a cash prize.
This contest is a great opportunity for young writers to share their work in a public forum, engage with the literary community in the Northwest, and possibly get published!
