Maine Writers: Apply for this!

2 Jan

This writing award is definitely worth your time.

Just a reminder to Maine writers to apply for the Egen WEX award. The application is SO simple, just a form with contact info and a work sample. The reward is a trip to New York City to meet publishing bigwigs (among a couple of other treats), so that’s a huge win for very little effort. There’s just no excuse to ignore this one, so let’s go!

Maine Writers: Award Opportunity

13 Dec

Poets & Writers invites Maine writers to apply for the Maureen Egen Writers Exchange Award.

“Each year, Poets & Writers considers applications for the award from writers in a selected state. This year, that state is Maine. The judges are Tania James for fiction and Cynthia Cruz for poetry.”

Deadline January 9. There’s no reason to not apply, folks. This award comes with a trip to New York to meet editors, agents, and publishers, as well as well-known writers. Your job is as simple as filling out a form and printing off a writing sample. Details here.

Good luck!
