Calling all campus writers! Randall Library’s annual writing contest, FlashLIT, is back!
Perhaps you are a journalism student? Let’s hear your news report! Do you write for blogs, or enjoy crafting pithy responses on current issues? Let’s see your essay skills! Or, perhaps you enjoy research or writing on scientific topics? Let us learn something new from your short paper! Is poetry your passion? Send us your verse! All genres are welcomed.
One week from today on Wednesday, January 29, 2020 there will be an announcement of our theme for this year’s FlashLIT Contest. This contest is a hallmark of applied learning at UNCW and the entire student body is invited to participate. Students will have one week to write 500 words or less on a given theme while incorporating Randall Library into the writing in some way. The top 3 winners are awarded monetary prizes (to their One Cards) and all winners and honorable mentions are included in a published anthology. Students from the Creative Writing Department Publishing Lab will be producing the anthology, and students in ART 260: Introduction to Graphic Design will be illustrating all entries, so it is truly a campus-wide applied learning production.
Detailed rules and regulations will be included in next week’s announcement. Get ready – the countdown to FlashLIT begins now!!!
