Early Bloomers

Here are some contests for college undergrads and high school students…the previous post is about how it’s never too late to get started, and it’s also never too early, either!

For college undergraduates:

Spires Intercollegiate Arts & Literary Magazine at Washington University in St. Louis is now accepting submissions of poetry, prose, and artwork for the Fall 2009 issue! We've been in print since 1995, putting out a magazine every semester, and we're proud of what we do, but we couldn't function if it weren't for the talent and work of creative students here and abroad.

Should you like to heed our call and submit, please send your writing in Word document form or your artwork as .tif images in email attachments to:
Subject: Fall 2009 Submission.
Message body: Name, year, school.

The deadline for submissions is FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 6th.

The only limits on submissions are that prose may be no longer than 15 pages double spaced, and we only accept submissions from undergraduate students.


For high school students:

Sandra Caron Young Adult Poetry and the Rita Williams Young Adult Prose Prize are for writers in grades 9-12 or equivalent age thereof.

Up to three poems for Poetry category and up to 3,000 words for Prose. Cash Prizes.
