Announcing the 2008 Confluence Writing Contest

Confluence: A Celebration of Reading and Writing in Moab, UT is hosting its first online writing contest. Submit your work through our website, www.moabconfluence.org, and compete for a $250 cash prize and the opportunity to be published in the Mountain Gazette.

The 2008 theme for Confluence is the writing of Edward Abbey. In honor of this theme, Confluence hopes to encourage and promote writing in a style that evokes the spirit and emotion that Edward Abbey was famous for - a story, fiction or non-fiction, that creates a desire to get off the couch and get outside - an article that brings the author's place, its smells and the feeling of being there, right to the reader and motivates him or her to do something, to get going.

Submissions must be original work of less than 5,000 words. All work must be submitted by September 15th, 2008, and the winner will be announced on October 19th, 2008.

Please see our website for more detailed information about submission, judges, and how to enter.
