We are now accepting submissions for the Spring 2016 Writing Contest.  This year's theme is:

Found in Translation


The contest is open to all UWEC students, faculty, staff, and Eau Claire community members.  Winners will be selected by a panel of faculty judges and announced at an open read in the Cabin.

Prizes are yet to be determined.  Grand prize will include publication in the Spring 2016 edition of NOTA, the UWEC student literary magazine.

All submissions must be received by midnight Friday, February 19.

Submissions must have a title, be saved as a PDF, and uploaded through the qualtrics link below.  We accept prose, both fiction pieces and non-fiction essays, and poetry.  Submissions must not exceed 1,500 words.  We ask that all prose submissions be double spaced, in Times New Roman, and in 12 point font.  Poetry can be single spaced.  Excerpts or chapters from longer works are accepted.  Multiple submissions will be judged together.
