2nd Annual DCHS Library Creative Writing Contest Now Open!

Attention all writers--the DCHS Library Creative Writing Contest is back! Submit your work to the Insquire Spring issue by April 17th--either fiction, poetry, or creative nonfiction--and be automatically eligible for the 2nd Annual DCHS Library Creative Writing Contest! Top three winners will receive gift cards ($50 first prize!), and their work will be archived in the DCHS library. You can either submit the work to Mrs. Girroir and the Insquire staff or to Mr. Fournie in the library.

2nd Annual DCHS Library Creative Writing Contest Submission Guidelines:

  1. Must be original, unpublished work.

  2. Can be fiction, poetry (1-3 poems), or creative nonfiction.

  3. No length requirement, but the submission must be a complete, standalone piece of writing. 

  4. Name of writer and title of work should be on a one-sided cover page. Title should appear in the header of each submitted page. The author’s name should appear nowhere on the manuscript.

Submit hard copy or digital copy to Mrs. Girroir (mgirroir@delonecatholic.org) or to Mr. Fournie (jfournie@delonecatholic.org) by April 17th.
