Dear NFB Listers - here is a reminder
RE: 2011 NFB Writing Contest is Coming Soon!
The annual youth and adult writing contests
sponsored by the Writers' Division of the NFB,
will open January 1st and close April 1st.
Adult contests, poetry, fiction and non-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 Orlando,
Florida, the first week of July, 2011. In
addition, shortly after convention, a list of
winners will appear on the Writers' Division
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,
