I'm chairman for this year's 28th Annual Southwest Writers Writing Contest, open to all English-language writers.
This year's contest has 14 categories including fiction and nonfiction books, articles, essays, poetry and screenplays. Submissions must be original and unpublished (or unoptioned in the case of screenplays). Editors and agents select the top three entries in each category. Writers retain all rights. Cash prizes are awarded including a $1,000 Storyteller Award. Postmark Deadline: May 1, 2010. Categories, contest rules and entry form can be found at http://southwestwriters.org/swwcontest.php.
