Pen 2 Paper
a disability-focused creative writing competition
Deadline: September 5, 2017
CTD's annual Pen 2 Paper (P2P) creative writing competition seeks pieces of fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and comics that treat the topic of disability. Whether or not you have experience as a creative writer; whether or not you have a disability, we want to hear your voice!
P2P is the ONLY disability-focused creative writing competition in Texas (correct us if we're wrong!). Our goals are to:
- give writers with disabilities a forum where they can share their work.
- bring awareness to disability issues through the arts.
- challenge all people of all ages to think, rethink, and express their stories, perspectives, fears, and discoveries about disability.
While P2P is based in Texas, people from other states or countries are welcome to enter.
Each year, entries are evaluated by a panel of volunteer judges, and prizes are awarded to the top entries in each category. Winners and finalists will be posted on P2P's website and given opportunities to share their work in public settings.
Local and state sponsors and volunteers help make the competition possible by contributing their time, expertise, products, services, and energy.
