Calling all creative writers!
Posted on 01/17/2017

The Arts Alliance of Yamhill County invites submissions to the 24th annual Paper Gardens competition. Paper Gardens is a creative writing program with categories in prose and poetry that accepts free entries from students ages 6 through 18.

This year’s competition will be judged by Oregon Poet Laureate Elizabeth Woody and Linfield College professor and author Dr. Anna Keesey.

The top three submissions in each category in each age group will be honored at a celebration in May and the submissions will be printed in the Paper Gardens chapbook.

Entry deadline is February 22, 2017.  For more information and entry forms, click here.

For over two decades the Paper Gardens chapbook has brought together the diverse voices of Yamhill County writers and poets into a single book. This unique publication features creative submissions from children, youth and adults who live, study or work in Yamhill County.
