Write Action announces its 14th Annual Poetry and Prose Writing Contest. Entries will be judged anonymously. Each category will be judged by an esteemed writer from the tri-state writing community. Judges this year will be: Poetry judge – New Hampshire Poet Laureate Alice Fogel; prose judge – Joyce Marcel; judge for prose and poetry in the youth category – retired head of the BUHS English Department, Nancy Olson.

The first place winners in both categories will be awarded $100, the second place winners $50, and third place winners $25 each, and the opportunity to read at this year's Literary Festival. All entries must be sent by June 30. The theme this year (to be taken broadly) is: "This could be the day!"

Writers may submit up to three pieces of writing (first one is free, $10 for each additional), either poetry or prose, or any combination. There are no fees for the Youth Category. For details visit writeaction.org
