SSA Committee 2005-2006
Join the Asian/Pacific/American Heritage 2006 CREATIVE WRITING CONTEST and win prizes!
Contest Theme: The broad theme for the contest is “A Passage to America,” and we are looking for creative examinations of issues in ethnicity, race, and diversity in the American experience through three genres in creative writing: short fiction, poetry, or creative nonfiction. More than physical travel, the “passage” in the theme is meant to convey an inner journey that ponders questions related to identity: What does it mean to “be” in America? How does one “become” an American? We hope that the contestants will tease, challenge, confront, ponder, and redefine their personal—emotional, physical, intellectual, spiritual—experience of America. We’ve made the theme as expansive as possible so that students of varied backgrounds and persuasions would feel encouraged to submit.
New deadline for submission of entries is on March 22, 2006. Read all the details.
