Tell us your story

POSTED: September 2, 2014 7:00 a.m.

Have you ever wanted to follow in the footsteps of writer Ernest Hemingway? Or F. Scott Fitzgerald? Or perhaps you just want to tell the story of a special family member. Everybody has a story in them.
Here’s your chance to tell us your story.
The Ellsworth Area Arts Council is sponsoring its fourth annual writing contest, “Writers of the Prairie.” Cash prizes will be awarded.
Age divisions will be: Adult — 18 and older and Youth — 17 and younger. Youth must submit their ages. Categories will be short stories and poetry with no requirement on subject matter.
Authors may enter as many times as they wish by paying a $5-per-entry fee for adults and a $3-per-entry fee for youth.
Entries should be mailed to the EAAC Writing Contest, 223 N. Douglas Ave., Ellsworth, Ks. 67439. Entries must be postmarked by Sept. 15, 2014.
Further rules, entry forms and other information are available by e-mailing or by calling (785) 472-5658 between 12:30 and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Or call                                                           (785) 472-5682 and leave a message.
