The Key West Writes of Spring: A Writing Contest

All participants must register in advance.



The 2014 Writes of Spring Contest



Through the tangled pathways, the twisted haunts, the spare and winding channels of Monroe County lurk fantastical stories and the people who tell them.
TSKW wants to read these stories.

On Monday, May 12 at 5:30, we begin. So come all you secret wordsmiths, you diligent doodlers, inkslingers & scribes.
Let the Writes of Spring catapult you to local fame & fortune. Meet others of your ilk, talk trash, & tell tales.
Be Brave! Be strong! Bring your work forth into the light of the season and…

The rules are simple, the command straightforward.

Between May 12 and June 2, you’ll write 2500-10000 words of a partial or complete story – The work must be new, and final submissions are due to The Studios by June 4 at 4pm.

TSKW will begin accepting registrations at 11am on Thursday, May 1 online, in person in the program office, or by telephone at 305-296-0458, and all participants must register and be confirmed by TSKW staff in advance of the May 12 start date.

Registration is limited to 25 persons – first come, first served — and is open only to residents of Monroe County (including part-time residents). A fee of $25 to cover program costs will be required.
