by admin Conference News. Posted on December 9, 2013.

Write On The River is thrilled to announce the opening of our 2014 Writers’ Competition!  Open to any Washington State resident, our annual competition has two divisions (Fiction and Nonfiction) and $1,200 in prize money (generously donated by Alcoa).

PrintThere is a 1,000 word limit for both divisions, so sharpen those red pens.  First Place in each division wins $300, Second Place wins $200, and Third Place wins $100.  Want some great constructive feedback on your writing?  For an additional $20 you can choose to receive written critiques from three judges!

Polish those pieces and get them to us by February 21, 2014.  Besides the cash prizes, placing in our competition can also be a confidence booster, profile raiser, and writing resume builder!  Winners will be published on our website, and will also be publicly recognized at our May 2014 Conference Keynote Address – great exposure for you and your writing.
