Write and Win

Got a story to tell? Enter it in the creative writing program’s statewide short story contest.

Monday, Oct. 17, is the postmark deadline to enter your work of fiction. Competition is open to North Carolina residents who have never published a book and are not tenure-track faculty in the UNC system. This year’s guest judge is Southern author Ron Rash.

The writer of the best story under 5,000 words will win $500. The prize for the best story of less than 1,200 words is $250.
