The 2019 Empowering Womxn of Color Conference is hosting a youth creative writing contest! This year, we are inviting youth to submit a creative writing piece (essay, poem, or short story) that reflects on the themes of EWOCC 2019 and addresses the following prompt: What does it mean to be a liberated womxn – affirmed in their identity, grounded in community, and empowered by self actualization?
The selected winner of our competition will receive a cash prize, an opportunity to read/perform their piece at EWOCC, free EWOCC admission for themselves and their family, as well as free EWOCC merchandise. Two runner ups will also be awarded free EWOCC admission.
Deadline: February 23rd, 2019
