Westmoreland Arts & Heritage Festival 2010 Poetry & Short Story Contest

4 December 2009

The Westmoreland Arts & Heritage Festival is currently accepting previously unpublished poetry and short story manuscripts for its 2010 Poetry & Short Story Contest. The contest is open to any living writer writing in English anywhere in the world.

Entries will be juried by accomplished writers and poets. Two jurors will be selected. One juror is chosen to evaluate the poetry entries and a second juror is selected to jury the short story entries.

The 36th Annual Westmoreland Arts & Heritage Festival takes place July 1-4, 2010 at Twin Lakes Park, near Greensburg, PA. Winning entries will be on display at the festival where up to 150,000 patrons will have the opportunity to read the works.

All work must be original, not having been entered in any previous Poetry & Short Story Contest sponsored by the Westmoreland Arts & Heritage Festival. There is no limit to the length of poems. Each author may enter one story; each poet may enter two poems. All genres are accepted. Awards for both contests total $1,000.

Entry fees are as follows:
$10 for up to two (2) poems.
$10 for one (1) short story.

Writers may enter both contests for a $20 entry fee.
Entries must be postmarked on or before March 15, 2010.
