Tucson Writing Contest
Here's an opportunity for one lucky writer to join us for our All Soul's Retreat in glowing Tucson, Arizona November 3 - 9, 2016.
Submit your best work (any genre is welcome - previously unpublished, please) of up to 2,000 words with a one to two page letter as to why you'd like to attend this retreat. The retreat will include the opportunity to walk in Tucson's otherworldly procession in which we pay tribute to those we've loved and lost. Consider the theme of the retreat in your writing submission, if you're moved to do so.
Please include answers to the following questions in your letter:
Why do you write?
What are your writing goals for yourself?
What kinds of projects are you working on, writing-wise and otherwise?
Why do you think you'd benefit from a retreat such as this one?
The winner will be announced by August 1 and will be invited to attend the retreat free of charge. Deadline for submissions is July 15, 2016.
