Heads Up: This just in from the Pirate’s Alley Faulkner Society:
“At the request of several high schools, the deadline for Category Seven entries for the 2010 William Faulkner – William Wisdom Creative Writing Competition was extended to May 15.
“In the interest of equality and fairness for all writers, therefore, we are extending the deadline for entries for all categories to May 15. Everything, electronic submissions and required hard copies and fees, must be in our hands by that date. There will be no additional extensions. Guidelines and entry forms
can be found on our web site. If you have any difficulties downloading the entry form, e-mail us.
“Also of note: Finalists in the competition (over 100) are entitled to 50% off Words & Music: A Literary Feast in New Orleans conference registration fees; competition winners are awarded free entry (in addition to the fabulous prizes and internatioal recognition!) Many of our finalists have gone on to great success as a direct result of their entering and placing in this prestigious competition.”
Excellent news for us procrastinators out there…
