2014 NFB Writers Division Writing Contest
The annual youth and adult writing contests
sponsored by the NFB Writers Division will open
January 1st and will close April 1st.
Adult contests, poetry, fiction, non-fiction, and
stories for youth are open to all entrants eighteen years and over.
The Youth Writing Contest, poetry and fiction, is
to promote Braille literacy and excellence in
creative writing. Entries will be judged on
creativity and quality of Braille. The contest is
divided into three groups, determined by grade
level elementary, middle, and high school.
Prizes for contest winners range up to $100 for
adult categories and up to $30 for youth.
All contest winners will be announced the first
week in July, at the Writers Division business
meeting during the NFB national convention, held
in Orlando, Florida. In addition, shortly after
convention, a list of winners will appear on the
Writers Divisions Website, <http://writers.nfb.org>http://writers.nfb.org
First, second, and third place winners in each
category will be considered for publication in
the Writers Division magazine, Slate & Style.

guidelines, go to our website, <http://writers.nfb.org>http://writers.nfb.org
