The English department at North Central Texas College is accepting submissions for the 2020-21 Creative Writing Awards.
From sixth grade to adult, non-professional writers, there are 12 opportunities to submit work in the following genres: short fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction and/or expository. The competitions are open to students and residents of Texas and Oklahoma, and all first, second, and third place winners will receive cash awards.
In the spring, NCTC will host a digital celebration where the winners will be recognized and the community will have a chance to experience the published work featured in The April Perennial. There will also be a special guest to share their creative and writerly wisdom.
