I've come to realize that many of my multifaceted readers are passionate about literature, in addition to art and design. Some of you are serious writers too. So I want to help spread the word about the William Faulkner - William Wisdom Creative Writing Competition for previously unpublished work. (Doing so also gives me an excuse to share this pretty view of Faulkner House found in an old notebook.)
Competition categories include: Novel, Novella, Novel-in-Progress, Short Story, Essay, Poetry, and Short Story by a High School Student. Entry fees for the High School, Essay, and Short Story categories range from $10 to $30. The deadline is May 1, 2009. Detailed guidelines are available here.
