Martin Luther King, Jr. Writing Awards

Carnegie Mellon University's creative writing department is sponsoring the Martin Luther King, Jr. Writing Awards, for CMU undergraduates and Pittsburgh-area high school students.

This contest seeks writers who can use prose and poetry to respond to or be inspired by the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr.

Prizes are $100, $75, and $25, with awards given in the categories of prose and poetry. The deadline is Monday, December 8, 2008. You can go to the Martin Luther King, Jr. Writing Awards homepage to see the prompt and get more information.

Meanwhile, if you are looking to take your creative writing skills to the next level, don't forget that the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh has a long list of books about writing poetry and writing fiction.
