Writing the (un)known


A Centre County Reads 2014 Event

Sponsored by the Center for American Literary Studies (CALS)

This writing contest is inspired by bestselling author Mary Roach's Packing for Mars, a playful inquiry into man's exploration of our universe. By blurring the line between the known and the unknown, Packing for Mars shows outer space to be surprisingly familiar. Enter your best writing-7,500 words or less-on what you perceive to be "(un)known" in one of the following categories:

• Best Short Fiction
• Best Poetry
• Best Short Nonfiction
• Best Entry for a Writer Under 18

$200 grand prize * Additional prizes for winners in each category

Entries due April 5th. Send your submission and a cover letter with your name, address, contact information, and a brief biography to cals@psu.edu.

Note: Winning entries to be displayed at Schlow Centre Region Library.
