A Carnegie Center Call for Manuscripts

It’s time again for the Carnegie Center’s annual Legacies Writing Contest for Writers Over 55. Awards will be offered for the best entries submitted: Poems, stories, essays, or memoirs drawn from the author’s personal history. The cash prize is $100 for first place and $50 for second. Winners and finalists will participate in the annual Legacies Reading at the Carnegie Center on Tuesday, March 4 at 6:30 pm, when the Legacies Medallion, donated in memory of Carole Pettit, will be presented. Entries will be judged by a qualified panel. Writers over 55 should submit manuscripts up to 1500 words (about five typed, double-spaced pages, which may include up to five poems). There is a $10 reading fee per five-page entry, payable to the Carnegie Center. Entries should include a cover page complete with author’s name, address, email address, phone number, and date of birth. Names should NOT appear on the entry itself. Deadline for submissions is SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 9. Entries most be postmarked or received by that date. Send submissions to: LEGACIES The Carnegie Center 251 West Second Street Lexington, KY 40507
