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:
- 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.
