Writing Contest – Friday, April 29, All day
For our current writing contest, we want you to write about water. In connection with our summer theme, Oceans of Possibilities, share how you felt the first time you traveled to the shore and stepped into the ocean, how water inspires or limits you, or how it shapes your work or family life. Don’t be afraid to include Johnson County’s own lakes, rivers and aquifers – while they are certainly not oceans, the water cycle connects it all. Submit at readlocal.submittable.com. Winners receive $200, and an invitation to read at a Library event.
