Only two weeks remain to apply for our awards for emerging writers.

Presented annually, the Joyce Horton Johnson Fiction Award, Scotti Merrill Memorial Award, and Marianne Russo Award recognize emerging writers of exceptional merit. Past winners include fiction writers Patricia Engel, Nami Mun, and Kristen-Paige Madonia; and poets George Green and Brynn Saito.

This year’s award winners will receive full tuition to our January seminar and workshop program, round-trip airfare to and from Key West, seven nights’ lodging, financial support for living expenses while in Key West, and the opportunity to appear on stage during the Seminar.

The deadline is September 30. Complete details are here.

    I have no Web site.
    I am interested in learning how to write books.
    I really want to write my life’s story.
    Since my kids think I’ve lived a very exciting life.Yes its true , I’ve have had many experiencies that I would like to put down on paper. Would just like to do it on the right way. I’ve met and been with people like Truman Capote and Jean Teriney, and others.
