Pen 2 Paper

a disability-focused creative writing competition

We're pleased to announce that the 2014 Pen 2 Paper creative writing contest is open! We encourage any new writers to show off their skills and invite all of our past entrants to dazzle us with some new work for our fifth year. Current rules and details for this year's contest can be found at the sidebar to the right, and we hope you'll stay in touch with us over the coming months on our Facebook page.

About the Pen 2 Paper Creative Writing Contest

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:

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.
