The Kent District Library, the Grand Rapids Public Library, and Schuler Books & Music are excited to announce the top 10 finalists in the 17-and-younger and 18-and-older categories. Nearly 600 entries were submitted from across the state.
Now it is your turn to vote. From now until January 31, you can vote one time per week in each category on the Write Michigan website. There will also be a Judge’s Choice award. Winners will be announced on February 1 and celebrated at an awards ceremony on March 19 at 7:00 pm at the Main Library. Local author Wade Rouse will speak at the event.
Winning stories will be published in a Chapbook Press book–available for sale at the event–and as a eBook. The book includes a forward by Rouse.
Congrats to all the finalists. Let the voting begin!
