Come, lovers of libraries! Wordsmiths! Readers and writers of the world! Submit your literary goodness to our commemorative spring issue of Word Fountain! In honor of our 125th anniversary as a library, our theme is open to libraries, literature and language.
Your 1,000 word or less submission can be loosely based on these themes. Interested in writing a poem about how great the library is? Or perhaps you have a flash fiction mystery piece with the library as a setting? Want to woo others with your love for Whitman? Care to compose a Chaucerian piece? Discuss your discourse on syntax, grammar…etc.
Please, share your creative insights with us:
Deadline for submissions: April 21, 2014
Ages 13+ (must have legal guardian’s permission if under 18. A signed document giving you permission is acceptable.)
