Just a Reminder: Deadline Approaching!
This is just a reminder that Monday, September 19 is the postmark deadline if you're planning to submit work to the Gwendolyn Brooks Center 2005 Literary Awards (previously mentioned in our July Practicing Writer newsletter). These annual awards in creative writing and criticism are offered in conjunction with the Gwendolyn Brooks Writers' Conference, which will take place this year October 19-22 at Chicago State University. Seven prizes in poetry, fiction, script writing, and literary criticism will be awarded as part of the Center's "continuing efforts to encourage writing that explores, explicates, embraces, and celebrates the richness of Black World Culture." See the website for specific descriptions of each award, including information on eligibility and honoraria. NO ENTRY FEE INDICATED.
