“I Was a Judge of Writing for Children in Carteret Writers’ Contest” by Joan Y. Edwards
I was honored that Carteret Writers’ board member, Susanne Bunch, invited me to be a judge of the Writing for Children submissions for their 2019 contest.
Here is information about them:
Founded in 1983, Carteret Writers holds monthly meetings on the second Wednesday of the month September through April at Clawson’s 1905 Restaurant and Pub, 425 Front Street, Beaufort, NC.
Born in 1983, Carteret Writers is a charitable, non-
- Promote the art of writing
- Cultivate camaraderie among writers
Collaborate with other organizations to foster an
understanding and appreciation of writing and writers
Their contest ended March 13, 2019 that was open to anyone interested in submitting. Submissions were accepted for the categories of flash fiction, fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and writing for children. In May they presented the contest winners with prizes at an awards dinner.
Although their monthly meetings are open to all, becoming a member helps them host speakers.
Membership is open to all writers, whether you’re interested in being published or just write for the fun of it. Membership entitles you to a free copy of Shoal, their annual literary journal and a subscription to their newsletter. It gives you discounts on contest and workshop fees. Membership also allows you to join one of their small critique groups or start a new one.
Their members include published and not-yet-published authors including, but not limited to:
- Fiction (flash fiction, short story, novel, children’s literature, romance, fantasy, and science fiction)
- Nonfiction (regional, historical, folklore, journalism, memoir, technical, and business)
