The Lake Superior Writers are looking for entries in this years writing contest.  The theme this year is "Rivers: Mapped and Unmapped."  There are several categories you can enter to win $250, and a winner from each category will be asked to read an excerpt at the Lake Superior Writers Annual Meeting.

The Lake Superior Writers explain what the theme means:

The 2017 theme is “Rivers: Mapped and Unmapped.” We are looking for submissions that use the theme of rivers, real or metaphorical. Writers have written about rivers as a metaphor for time, history, lifeblood and more. What will rivers, or a specific river, evoke in your writing? In her song River, Joni Mitchell wrote, “I wish I had a river I could skate away on.” What do rivers mean to you?
