Contest: Writer's Workhop in Omaha - Personal Essay/Radio (Deadline Nov. 5)
The Writer's Workshop of the University of Nebraska at Omaha, together with Classical 90.7 KVNO Radio in Omaha, is launching a pilot project to air personal essays written by professional writers. We invite you to submit a piece for consideration.
-- Essays should be original, unpublished essays no longer than 100 words.
-- Please, no excerpts from previously published works.
-- We are looking for human-interest pieces, written in the first person, that will appeal to a general audience.
-- No politics, please, unless, of course, you are writing about your up-close-and-personal experience in politics. Reactions to current events are okay, provided the point of view is personal.
-- No preaching, no promotion (of self or others), no p.r.
-- Review of submissions will begin on NOVEMBER 5.
-- Submit essays via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please send as
a .doc or .rtf file, or cut and paste your piece into the body of an email. OR
