A NEW PWP WRITING CONTEST with the winning entries included in a PWP anthology. Fiction, non-fiction and poetry from PWP members with a limit of 2500 words. No cost to enter. The anthology will be published locally so there will be no copyright issues. PWP will begin accepting entries in May with a cutoff date the end of August. Entries will then be judged and chosen for the anthology which will be available for purchase in late fall -- in time for Christmas. Look for further details in the PWP April bulletin. It will be for members of PWP as an advantage of membership – like the workshops and author book festivals. However, anyone can join.
