Writing contest for residents of Clark, Crawford counties

Residents with an interest in creative writing have an opportunity to win $500 as part of the James Jones Lincoln Trail Creative Writing Contest.

Submissions must be original, at least 1,500 words, typed and include a cover page. The author’s name is to appear on the cover page only, not on the manuscript. All pages are to be numbered and include the short story title on the top left of every page.

To be considered for the award, writers must be: a high school senior or at least 18 years old or older officially residing in Crawford or Clark County, Ill.; or be an LTC graduate.

Students who have already earned LTC credit, high school seniors graduating this spring who will attend LTC at least part-time during the next academic year and current LTC students, are particularly encouraged to enter their stories.

Applicants cannot have been published professionally (meaning received payment).

Submissions must be turned in to the LTC Marketing Office no later than June 28. Cover pages are available from the LTC Eagleton Learning Resource Center and online at www.iecc.edu/ltc and www.jamesjonesliterarysociety.org.
