The 2012 Contests Are Here!

We just updated our contest pages today, so have a look at them –

The Andre Dubus Award 2012        The Betsy Sholl Award 2012

Lily King has generously donated her time to judging The Andre Dubus Award this year.

The Betsy Sholl Award will be judged by the University of Southern Maine’s Professors Nancy Gish and Shelton Waldrep.

Winners receive publication, the opportunity to read at our Spring release party, and prize money relative to the pages of their entry. Time’s ticking away, so click the links and submit your work!

Get Involved!

It’s that time, folks – that time where we send out a rallying cry to those USM students who love the arts. ALL the arts: Sounds, sights, escapades, meaningful shenanigans and of course, words & images.

We are looking for people who want to participate in the production of next year’s Words & Images. We need poetry and fiction readers/editors, art editors and artists, marketing representatives, line editors and critical, creative eyes.

If this sounds like you, or someone you know – report to the SGA Office in the Woodbury Campus Center on May 2nd at 3 PM for a general interest meeting.

If you can’t make it, but are still interested, e-mail Caroline at caroline.oconnorthomas@maine.edu.

We hope to see you there.
