Writing Contests

At Johnson County Library we love celebrating local authors! Every month we host a new contest with prizes including a $200 honorarium and an invitation to read at a Library event. One winner will be selected from submissions of poetry, short fiction, and essays. Read more about the guidelines and enter your original works here »

Also of interest: the Carlson Center Writing Contest. Submissions due February 26, 2020.
