The Cochise Community Creative Writing Celebration brings published writers in several genres, such as poetry, novels, creative nonfiction, juvenile fiction, and screenwriting, to present hands-on workshops to aspiring writers from the community.
Celebration participants are also invited to enter a writing contest in three categories: poetry, short story (fiction) and memoir (nonfiction). In addition to cash prizes, first-place winners of the writing contest have their work published in Mirage, Cochise College’s literary and arts magazine.
Writing Contest Deadline: Feb. 22, 2016
