The Blinn College English Department invites all current students to submit their best stories related to the fall or winter seasons for a chance to win prizes.

Sponsored by W.W. Norton & Company, the contest is open to all students and will accept submission from 9 a.m. Friday, Oct. 1, through 1 p.m. Friday, Oct. 29. Students may submit one typed, double-spaced short story of 3,000 or fewer words. Stories may not contain explicit material.

First place receives $75 plus a book prize, second place receives $25 plus a book prize, and third place receives a book prize. Winners will be announced in November.

Students on the Brenham and Bryan campuses must submit three printed copies to their campus Writing Center (Brenham Campus Academic Building, Room 9 or Bryan Campus A-118) and submit a digital copy to Students on the RELLIS, Schulenburg, and Sealy campuses and students taking online classes only need to submit a digital copy.

Each submission should include the title alone on the cover page. The author’s name, Blinn ID, phone number, email address, and story title should be listed on a separate sheet of paper attached to each submission (or on a separate page in a digital document).

All submissions will be eligible for possible publication in Blinn’s student work journals.
