Writers wanted for Pen to Page

The Parkland Writers’ Alliance is looking for writers. The PWA, along with the Yorkton Public Library and Yorkton This Week are sponsoring Pen to Page, a writing and public reading event.

The contest, which is open to anyone who is not a PWA member, is meant to get people in the area writing said Carol Knoll, PWA member.

“It’s more or less to encourage people to write, and hopefully we will get some new members who will be interested in joining.”

There will be three judges evaluating the work, and those submissions judged the best will be eligible for cash prizes.

Entries will be read out at a reading event on April 24 at the Yorkton Public Library at 7:00 p.m. The reading will also feature selections from PWA members. Everyone is invited to attend to enjoy the evening of storytelling.

The rules are as follows:
Maximum two entries of unpublished work.
Maximum word count of 1,000 words per submission.
Any format is welcome – poetry, prose, fiction and non-fiction.
Cash prizes of $50, $30, and $20 will be awarded by the PWA.
Submissions must be received by April 3, 2019. Submissions may be emailed to writersyorkton@gmail.com or sent to Parkland Writers Alliance c/o Yorkton Arts Council, 49 Smith St. E., Yorkton, Sk. S3N0H4.
Writers must include a contact name, number and email address.
They also remind authors that they want the reading event to be family friendly.
