The Ladies’ Literary Club of Cedar Rapids, Iowa invites area college students to enter works of creative writing in the Club’s spring 2020 literary prize competition.
Each writer may submit up to 5 pages of text double-spaced using a font
no smaller than 12. Submissions may include poetry, short fiction and or/creative essays, presented as a single work, a part of a collection, or an excerpt of a longer work. We expect this to be original work, not a derivative, using accurate punctuation, grammar and spelling. The deadline for submission is Friday, March 13, 2020. A monetary prize of up to $500 will be awarded for the work judged to exhibit the highest literary merit and will be presented at an awards ceremony on May 12, 2020.
A separate cover page that gives the writer’s name, local address, phone number and email address should accompany each submission. Works should be emailed to Kay Jackson at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Ladies’ Literary Club of Cedar Rapids was founded in 1897 to foster interest in literature and the love of reading. The club is also committed to encouraging creative writing by college students. We warmly applaud the literary efforts of participants and look forward to their work.
