Kansas Voices writing contest to mark 25th year

Kansas Voices, sponsored by the Winfield Arts & Humanities Council, is back for its 25th year. Submit your short stories, prose, or poetry as we commemorate another year of writing. Winners will be honored and invited to read their work at a special presentation at Winfield Baden Square, 700 Gary, Winfield, on May 3. Dinner will be served for only $9 a person.

If you like to write just for fun or are a professional writer, then you are encouraged to enter the 25th annual Kansas Voices Writing Contest. Writers may enter either youth or adult divisions in two categories: poetry and prose (short story). Youth Division entrants must be currently enrolled in high school or be under 18 years of age.

To be eligible, writers must live in Kansas. All entries must be postmarked by March 15. No particular subject matter is required, and all entries are judged by professionals entirely on literary merit. Entries must be unpublished stories or poems accompanied by an official entry form and a $3 entry fee for each submission. Guidelines and entry forms are available through the Winfield Arts and Humanities Council, 700 Gary, Suite A & B, Winfield, KS 67156; 620-221-2161 or download entry form from www.winfieldarts.com.

Prize money of $1,000 will be awarded: $275 each for first prize in adult poetry and prose, $100 each for first prize in youth poetry and prose, and a total of $250 in Honorable Mentions.

The overwhelming response to Kansas Voices exemplifies both the need and contribution made by the contest to the writers in Kansas. Let your voice be heard.

This contest is made possible by the generous support of its sponsors: Winfield Daily Courier; Winfield Consumer Products; CornerBank; GE Engine Services; Cowley College, Arkansas City; and Bob and Nancy Love, Wichita. Kansas Voices is also underwritten by Winfield Convention and Tourism.
