[WRITING] [CONTEST] ... and for the Californian writers amongst us

California is one of two states chosen for the Poets & Writers Writers Exchange for 2007 -- which means we probably won't be chosen again for a quarter century!

The 2007 California Writers Exchange is funded through a major grant from the James Irvine Foundation.

Details [PDF file]

Deadline for submission is August 31, 2006.

Writers must be California residents for at least two years and have never published a book or have published no more than one full-length book. Self-published books don't count.

A poet and a fiction writer will be chosen and each will receive a $500 honorarium and travel/lodging to NYC in May 2007 to "meet with editors, agents, publishers and writers" and to give a public reading.
