Fall 2015 Semester Contest

Southwinds is hosting a competition on campus for all artistically inclined students and staff!  Any member of the campus community can submit poetry, short stories of both fiction and nonfiction, artwork, and photography to the contest, and we will chose a winner in each category.  Prizes will be available for the winners.

There are two optional themes going in the contest, if anyone wants something to help them chose a topic to work on:  Monsters and Fall.  Monsters was proposed as a Halloween prompt, and Fall is a more generic prompt.  The fall theme indicates change, colors, endings and beginnings as well as anything fall related that anyone wants to use as a prompt.  However, no one is limited to these two themes for the contest, and any piece submitted will be accepted.

Please submit on our site or directly to our email, with Contest in the subject line.  We look forward to your entrees!  Good luck Missouri S&T!
