First Annual WNBA National Writing Contest Announced

The Women's National Book Association announced its first annual writing contest recently. The WNBA is an educational, charitable, and networking organization for women in the book world. It's been around since 1917, before women in America even had the right to vote. It's even been an NGO member of the United Nations since 1959. "After years of celebrating published authors, extraordinary book women and others in the field," says their website, "we have decided it is time to celebrate emerging writers." Entries can be either fiction up to 2500 words or poetry up to 35 lines. Deadline is November 1, 2012. For more information, click here.
