POTENTIAL SUBMISSIONS, PLEASE READ

If you are thinking that you'd like to submit your work to our literary journal for publication, or are looking at entering our Creative Writing Contest, please take the time to view our SUBMISSION GUIDELINES.

There are guidelines for both written and visual entries, located earlier in our archives.

Thank you for your interest. We look forward to hearing from you!

CREATIVE WRITING CONTEST FOR KCKCC STUDENTS (Deadline December 1st, 2015)

A quick reminder for all our devoted readers and for everyone that graciously submitted their work to us in the past eight months!

A new day is dawning here at Scenic Route, and what better way to ring in our new vitality and vivacity than with a writing contest? Perhaps to have a writing contest with cash prizes? I think so!

Here's the information for our contest:

Anyone who is currently enrolled in classes at Kansas City Kansas Community College, the KCKCC TEC program, or a student at any USD 500 school can submit.


Entries will be grouped into ONE of FOUR categories:

FICTION  (short stories, novel chapters, plays, screenplays)

POETRY   (includes spoken word / rap style submission (lyrics only, please, no video entries))

ART         (all media, including photography)

ESSAY      (personal, argument, or other non-fiction)

ALL ENTRIES MUST COMPLY WITH OUR SUBMISSION GUIDELINES.

Staff of the Kansas City Kansas English Department will judge the entries and decide upon a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winner for each of the categories. All entries will also be considered for publication in the next issue of Scenic Route, our in-house literary magazine.

Prizes will be $100 for 1st place, $75 for 2nd, and $50 for 3rd. Good luck!

The deadline for submissions is December 1st, 2015.

Thank you for participating, and we wish you the best of luck!
