Monday, February 19, 2018 is the last day to submit. Now is the time to make sure your final edits are in and to submit if you plan to participate.
The contest is open to Tempe residents, Tempe Public Library cardholders, high school students and ASU students. Winners will have their work published in the Tempe Writers Forum v. 4.

The Tempe Public Library and Arizona State University are proud to present the 4th annual Tempe Community Writing and Cover Design Contest! Tempe community writers and graphic designers are invited to submit their creative work; both contests are open to Tempe residents, Tempe Public Library Cardholders, high school students and ASU students.
The contest will accept entries from January 8, 2018 to February 19, 2018. Writers may submit one original work in either poetry, short fiction or creative nonfiction (including essays and memoir). Entries are read anonymously by members of ASU’s creative writing community, and a winner is chosen in each genre for the three entry categories: high school student, college student (undergraduate or graduate), and community adult. Graphic artists (age 14 and above) are invited to prepare a color cover design for the 2018 issue of Tempe Writers Forum, the publication that shares the winning entries.
In addition to having their work published in volume 4 of the Tempe Writers Forum and on the library’s website, contest winners will be celebrated at a reception at the Tempe Public Library in April. For more information (like the full contest submission guidelines, past issues of Tempe Writers Forum, and the works of writers receiving honorable mention), check out the contest’s webpage. If you’re a resident of Tempe, definitely look into this opportunity!
