I want to bring to your attention that the annual youth and adult
writing contests sponsored by the Writers' Division of the NFB,
opened January 1st and will close April 1st.
Adult contests, poetry and fiction, are open to all entrants eighteen
years and over.
The youth contests are all about Braille and all poetry and fiction
entries are required to be submitted in Braille. The age groups are
divided into three categories: first through sixth grades, seventh
and eighth grades, and ninth through twelfth grades.
Prizes for contest winners range up to $100 for adult categories and
up to $25 for youth categories.
All contest winners will be announced at the Writers' Division
business meeting during the NFB national convention to be held in
Dallas, Texas, the first week of July, 2010. In addition, shortly
after convention, a list of winners will appear on the Writers'
First, second, and third place winners in each category will appear
in the summer and fall issues of the Writers' Division magazine,
"Slate and Style."
For additional contest details and submission guidelines, go to the
Writers' Division website,
