There's Still Time to Submit "The Write Stuff"

The UACCM Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society is again sponsoring “The Write Stuff” writing competition and offering prizes including a three hour tuition credit to UACCM for the best poems, essays, and short stories submitted by students.

The competition is open to all high school age students or older, and entries will be judged by UACCM English faculty members on their creativity, impact, command of genre, and fluency in mechanics and conventions of writing. The winner in each category will receive a $100 prize, with the overall winner receiving a three credit hour tuition waiver to be used at UACCM in addition to the $100 prize. All entries submitted must be typed and double-spaced using a standard 12-point font, have one-inch margins, and include a header including the writer’s last name and page number. Poems should fall between eight and 50 lines, short stories should be between four and 15 pages, and essays should be from three to six pages in length. Participants in the contest may submit entries until March 31, 2009, and the winners will be announced in the first week of May by mail, e-mail, and on the UACCM Web site. The cost for entry in the competition is $7 for one entry or $5 per entry if submitting more than one item for judging. Writers may enter as many submissions as they choose and mail them, with entry fees, to:
