Writers, prepare your entry and mark your calendar. The Indianhead Writers’ “Fall Writers Contest” is set for Oct. 20, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Spooner Agriculture Station (Experimental Farm) on Highway 70, east of Spooner. Any and all area writers’ club members, as well as individual writers, may take this opportunity to meet with other writers to discuss writing and marketing problems and report on the activities of their clubs. This event is a contest offering three $75 cash prizes.
The entrant must write a fiction or nonfiction prose piece, or a poem, on any subject, with a limit of 100 words minimum to about 1,500 words maximum. The entry should not require much more than five minutes to be read. Only one entry per person. The writer or a designated person will read it. Everyone attending the meeting will vote to determine the winning entries. The entries will be judged in sections, rather than at the end of the contest. One $75 prize will be given to the winner of each section. A writer who wishes to enter a piece can pre-register before the meeting, but they may register and enter at the meeting. It is not necessary to enter the contest to attend. There is no charge for admission or to enter the contest. Register for lunch before Oct. 18 by writing to Indianhead Writers, Mary B. Olsen, 314 6th Ave., Shell Lake, Wis. 54871, or calling (715) 468-2604 for more information.
