The deadline for entering the 2013 Utah Original Writing Competition is 5 p.m. Friday, June 28.
The competition identifies and awards Utah writers for works of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry in the form of short stories, essays, poems, and full-length manuscripts for readers of all ages. Submissions must be original works. They cannot be published or accepted for publication at the time of entry. Manuscripts will be reviewed in a blind process by five to seven judges selected from outside of Utah.
Past award winners have included Utah Poet Laureates. There is no entry fee for the competition, and it is open to all Utah residents.
