Here is a press release from the St. Louis Writers Guild on a new contest.
WIRED ART WRITING CONTEST OFFERS PUBLICATION AND PUBLIC READING OF WINNING ENTRIES!
In a unique collaboration, St. Louis Writers Guild, Art World Association, South County Times, and the Wired Coffee café are co-hosting Wired Art, a writing contest for art-inspired poems, stories and essays. The artwork was created by members of Art World Association and is currently displayed at the Wired Coffee café, 3860 S. Lindbergh, Sunset Hills. The public is invited to visit the cafe, enjoy great food and drinks, enjoy the art, and select one work on which to base a poem or short story or essay of up to 500 words.
Nine writing entries will be chosen by judges who are members of St. Louis Writers Guild as winners. Beginning in March, one winning writing entry and the art that inspired it will be published by South County Times.
Also, on Tuesday, March 11, SLWG's regular Open Mic Night at Wired Coffee, from 7 to 9 p.m., will begin with live readings of the Wired Art writing contest winning entries.
Contest deadline: February 26. For complete guidelines, including the printable contest entry form, visit: http://www.stlwritersguild.org/wordpress/?p=297
