Writing Contest For Participants
Students at participating Cavalcade of Authors West schools are invited to participate in the short story writing contest. Stories can be in prose or verse. There will be a middle and a high school division with a winner from each division.
The best story from each school will be judged by a panel from Pacific Lutheran University’s literary magazine, Saxifrage, and will be judged on originality, unique style, creativity, and use of descriptive language. Stories must be original work of no more than 1,500 words.
Submit a hard copy and an electronic copy of your original work to your Librarian by February 19th. Schools must submit all entries by February 26th. Winners will be announced at #COAWest16 and also published in The Mast (the PLU newspaper) before April 30.
