Tempe Writing & Cover Design Contest 2019
ASU students from all majors and campuses in metropolitan Phoenix (including ASU Online students who reside in Maricopa County) are invited to submit their creative work in the 5th annual Tempe Writing and Cover Design contest.
The contest will accept entries from Jan. 7 – Feb. 18, 2019. Writers may submit one original, unpublished work in either poetry, short fiction or creative nonfiction (including essays and memoir).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 2019 issue of Tempe Writers Forum, the publication that shares the winning entries.
Contest winners — in addition to having their work published in volume five of the Tempe Writers Forum and on the library’s website — will be celebrated at a reception at the Tempe Public Library on Wednesday, April 3, 2019. Additionally, the Friends of the Tempe Library will award a $50 prize to all winners.
