Friends. Fall is here, winter approaches, and with these seasons come the usual visitors: 90 to 100 degree weather, National Novel Writing Month, existential dread, and writing competitions within the Maricopa Community College District and here at GCC.
First up is Maricopa’s competition, which is open to all students within the Maricopa district. The contest accepts submissions in essay, fiction, one-act play/script, and poetry categories.
The deadline for this contest is November 17th, 2017.
UPDATE: The deadline has been extended to December 1st, 2017 by 10:59PM.
Read through the official entry guidelines and submit here: Creative Writing at MCCCD.
Not to be outdone, GCC has our own writing contest through the Traveler, our arts and literary magazine. We accept the same genres as the district competition above–essay, fiction, one-act play/script, and poetry. Plus, we also accept submissions of flash fiction (500 words or fewer) as a separate category.
To read the full entry guidelines and submit your work, head here: Submissions
Don’t know which competition to submit to? Simple: submit to both.
Any work you enter into the district competition can also be entered in the Traveler competition, and the reverse is also true.
Problem solved. Now, get your work ready, polish it up, and submit!
