Summer Wonderings writing contest deadline Sept. 21

By Jake Davies - West Carleton Online

WEST CARLETON – Summer is almost over and so is West Carleton’s young writers’ opportunity to submit an entry in the Summer Wonderings writing competition.

The competition, only open for young authors from rural west Ottawa, is an opportunity for those who love the pen to get published in an anthology series and be in a book lining the walls of Ottawa’s west librariers.

Summer Wonderings is a collaboration between West Carleton’s Melba McGee and the volunteers of the Carp Creative Writers Group (CCWG), the Stittsville Creative Writing Group (SCWG) and the West Carleton Writers (WCW) to provide a voice and a showcase for young writers across west Ottawa.

Summer Wonderings is a contest for young writers attending Grades 7 through 12 in 2021, who live or attend school in Carp, Stittsville or West Carleton postal code areas.

“The writers are encouraged to express their creativity this summer by telling us a fictional story or a poem, based on the idea of Summer Wonderings,’ and what that means to them, through the art of fiction writing, story or poem, for a chance to win a place in a published anthology containing all entries chosen by our judges,” contest creator Melba McGee told West Carleton Online in an earlier interview.

With summer winding down, young writers now have all the material they will need, stored in their creative brains, to put pencil to paper and write out a submission.

Submissions will be accepted until Sept. 21.
