2014 National Federation of the Blind (NFB) Writing Contest is Nearing Closure!

The submission period is quickly coming to an end 
for our annual youth and adult writing contests. 
The last day for getting your work into us for the competition is April 1st.

As a Reminder

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 categories.

All contest winners will be announced at the 
Writers’ Division business meeting during the NFB 
national convention to be held in Orlando, 
Florida, the first week of July, 2014. In 
addition, shortly after convention, a list of 
winners will appear on the Writers’ Division 
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 the Writers’ Division Website,
