The deadline for the first annual Santa Barbara Writers Conference Writing Contest in Fiction, Nonfiction and Poetry is June 1, so get your entries in now! Winners in each category will receive a scholarship for tuition to the June 2010 Santa Barbara Writers Conference and a grand prize winner will get a scholarship and the opportunity to have lunch with a top agent during the conference.
Fiction entries can be in any genre. Nonfiction can be essay, article or memoir. Fiction and nonfiction entries must be no more than 3,000 words. Poets may submit up to five poems, no more than 15 pages total. Each category will be judged by a team of SBWC workshop leaders and the winners will be chosen from among the finalists by a noted author. You can enter as many times as you like in all the categories. If these guidelines aren’t followed, your entry will be disqualified. The cost is $25 per entry, and all entries must be postmarked by June 1 to be eligible. The winners will be announced July 20 and celebrated at a special event later this summer.
Mail all entries to SBWC Writing Contest, P.O. Box 6627, Santa Barbara, CA 93160. Include a check made out to SBWC to cover all entry fees.
