Our Annual Writing Contest

Please join us on May 8, 2019, when we will hold our contest awards dinner at Southern Salt Seafood Company (formerly Capt. Bill's), 701 Evans St., Morehead City, NC.

From 5:30-6:00 p.m. we will have drinks and socializing, with dinner at 6:00 p.m. followed by the awards ceremony.

We hope to see everyone there!

The 2019 contest marks the 28th consecutive year of our writing contest, which opens on January 1, 2019, to all writers. We will stop accepting submissions on March 13, 2019. All submission must be mailed or delivered in person at one of our monthly luncheon meetings.

As in the past, we will have blind judging which means the submissions cannot have the author’s name or any identifying mark on the submissions. The judges for each category will be announced on January 1, 2019. Those submitting an entry cannot contact the judge concerning an entry.

All decisions by the judges are final. Winners will be announced at the May 2019 awards dinner to be announced on when details are finalized. A contest winner does not need to be present to claim the award.

Please read the details in the contest guidelines HERE.

For all submissions, please use the cover sheet located HERE.
