Club Corners: Creative writing and pizza!


Warren Literary Journal is calling all creative poets, writers and everyone in between tocome sign up for an open mic night being held on April 9 at 6:00 p.m. It is time for us Huskies to shine and show off our skills.

There will be four categories open for this contest. For all poetry, there are no specific form or style required but you are limited to a maximum 350-word count. Fictional pieces should involve imaginary events and people in prose form. You should limit your work in fiction to 2,000-word maximum.
For a creative nonfiction piece, Wikipedia defines creative nonfiction as “a genre of writing that uses literary styles and techniques to create factually accurate narratives.” This category has a 2,000-word maximum as well.

The last category is critical essay. We follow, which defines critical essays as a form of an academic writing that analyzes, interprets, and/or evaluates a text. In a critical essay, an author makes a claim about how particular ideas or themes are conveyed in a text, then supports that claim with evidence from primary and/or secondary sources. This category is too limited to a 2,000-word maximum.

All submissions are due no later than Monday, April 1st to [email protected] With your masterpiece, be sure to insert at the subject line of the email the category your work goes under. By April 5, the winners on this contest will be notified and encouraged to read their pieces aloud at the open mic night. However, all participants are more than welcomed to attend and read their submissions to the public.

This exciting event will take place in the Student Service Center in Room 004. Pizza and refreshments will be provided, which means if you don’t plan on going up to read a piece of yours, you can still watch others while you eat delicious free food.
