Carteret Writers 2015 Contest


Tuesday, March 10, 2015


, , ,

Entry Fees

By mail or drop off: $5/entry for members, $10/entry for nonmembers
By electronic submission: $7/entry for members, $12/entry for nonmembers


1st/2nd/3rd in each category: $100/$50/$25 and publication in our literary journal, Shoal. Shoal is sold only at our meetings or my mail to members or authors who submitted to our contest, so you keep first rights to your work.


Contest categories include flash fiction, fiction, nonfiction, poetry and children’s. If fewer than ten entries from ten different participants are received for a category, that category will be dropped and the entry fee will be refunded.

Winning entries will be published in the 2015 edition of our literary journal, Shoal. Entries awarded honorable mention may also be published if the author chooses. Authors retain all rights to their work.

Judging will be blind, conducted by published authors, journalists or other professionals in the field of writing. Winners will be announced at an awards dinner in Morehead City on May 12, and later on our web site. Checks will be mailed to winners unable to attend the dinner.

For complete contest guidelines, see our new contest web site, or e-mail [email protected].

Founded in 1983, Carteret Writers is a nonprofit organization dedicated to cultivating camaraderie among writers and promoting the art of writing. Besides monthly meetings held on the second Tuesday of the month, smaller genre critique groups are available to members.
