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’ Division’s 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
