The Easton Arts Council’s fourth annual Young Writers Competition has extended its deadline for submissions from students in Easton and its neighboring towns (Redding, Newtown, Monroe, Trumbull, Fairfield, Westport & Weston).
All entries must be submitted to YWC@eastonartscouncil.org no later than Feb. 25. Writers are asked to submit “Your most memorable Hometown Experience,” real or imagined.
Entries can be prose, poetry, play or screenplay; each entry is evaluated on originality, quality of writing and interpretation of theme. Three $25 prizes will be awarded, for elementary school, middle school and high school.
A $5 entry fee plus an Easton Arts Council membership — family $25 or youth $5 — is required. Prize-winning entries will be announced on March 4, and read aloud at the Easton Arts Council’s Youth Art & Talent Show on March 10. For questions, call Karen Thorsen, 203-261-4747.
