MCWC 2019 Writing contests

All conference registrants are encouraged to submit to our writing contest. The contest is only open to participants registered for the full three-day conference. There is no entry fee. You may make one submission, in the category of your choice. Cash awards of $100, $75, and $50 are available in each category. However, awards are made solely at the discretion of the judging panel. On some occasions, not all prize money will be awarded. Winners will have the opportunity to read their work at the conference, and winning entries will be considered for publication in The Noyo River Review. 

Submissions must be received by midnight on June 30, 2019. The contest for MCWC 2019 is now closed.

2019 categories are:
