Writing contest winners…applause!

We’d like to take a moment to recognize the winners of Willamette Writers’ annual Kay Snow Writing Contest — named for the founder of the Oregon-based group.

Their categories include groups not always seen in similar organizations’ writing contests, including screenplays, and — notably — younger writers:

  • Poetry
  • Fiction (flash, short story, novella, and novel excerpt)
  • Nonfiction (including essays, critical commentary, and memoir)
  • Drama and screenplay
  • Students grades 1-6
  • Students grades 7-12

The contest has been open to members and nonmembers, with members securing a submission fee price break.

As noted in this post, the recognition gained by winning a writing contest can give a writer a needed boost to counter the sometimes inevitable doubts.
