Writers and Poets of Midvale
We want to celebrate your work!
On March 26th and 27th Midvale will hold its first Literary Festival showcasing the great work by its residents. Short stories and poems will be featured on our website and social media and prizes will be given to the top entries.
How do you become a part of this?
Simple, send in your short stories (4,000 words or less) and/or poems by March 12th to Admin@midvalearts.com. Please put your name and category in the subject line. Ex: John Doe Short Story Submission.
Entries will be read by a panel of judges and the winners will be announced on March 26th. Like we said, simple.
What if I don’t have time to write a story or poem?
We got your back on this. This festival hold a Flash Contest where all you get 24 hours to write a story or poem. Those entering will be given prompts for their stories and/or poems and then have one day to get their submission in. Entries in both categories must be under 1,000 words.
Great! How do I enter the Flash Contest?
