The Lynn Library is hosting its second annual creative writing contest for all Lynn students!


Any students in the Lynn community may nominate themselves or classmates, and we ask faculty to encourage their students to submit their projects. Works must be short stories or creative nonfiction, and must be an original piece between 1,500 and 3,000 words. All entries are due by March 22, 2018. Submissions can be emailed to library@lynn.edu.


The panel of judges, composed of writers, editors, and professors, will announce the winners during National Library Week on Wednesday, April 12, 2018. The first place winner will receive $100, the narrative published as an iBook, an engraved plaque, and will be honored at the Published Faculty Reception held in the Wold Performing Arts Center on April 19, 2018.
