Erma Bombeck Writing Competition


Right now the information is still from two years ago (the contest runs every other year) but the winning entries from last time are up there.

Here’s the info.—
Choose one category for entry: Humor or Human Interest. Write
a personal essay of 450 words or fewer. Be sure to use the online
entry form. All ages may enter (all entries are judged together).
Entries are accepted from anywhere in the world. English only.
Only one entry allowed per person. This year, the writing
competition is charging $15 for entries, but is also awarding a
prize of $500 in each of four categories (one entry per person
for Humor either in the Global or Local (Dayton) category and
for the Human Interest either in Global or Local), PLUS a paid
registration (value $350) to the Erma Bombeck Writers’ Workshop
which will be held in April. Winners are also recognized at the
Workshop luncheon. Entries accepted beginning January.
