To expand our membership and to encourage new writers to get their work out there, Get Lit Beacon is launching a Fall Writing Contest.
Topic: A Beacon (or Hudson Valley) story. This can be in a concrete, direct way, an abstract way, a lyrical way, a metaphorical way, or any way you feel is connected to this particular place… We don’t want you to feel trapped by the theme; but rather, for it to free you!
Genre: Fiction or Creative Nonfiction
Limit: Up to 1,000 words
Time for entries: September 1-30, 2018
Cost per entry: $5
