The Write Idea: The Ralph Munn Creative Writing Contest and You

“We shall not cease from exploration. And the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.” – T. S. Eliot

Did you ever have a wish to become some famous writer?  You’ve just finished reading a fantastic book that made you just itching to grab a pen and start scribbling — or maybe a keyboard to hammer out some crazy idea that is just bursting to get out?  Sometimes watching a movie or even listening to a particular song can urge me to spit out some sweet story that sounds just as impressive as the ever so popular Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins; To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee; or my all-time favorite, The Host by Stephenie Meyer.

Well, you now have that chance.  On May 7th, you, my dear writer, have an opportunity to grab that dream and make it come true.  Perhaps you have heard of it before and maybe not, but Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh is once again providing you the opportunity to participate in the Ralph Munn Creative Writing Contest.  There will also be workshops that you can attend to get some tips on writing and a chance for others to critique your work.  As William Faulkner says, “Get it down. Take chances.  It may be bad, but it’s the only way you can do anything really good.”

Need some inspiration?  Somewhere to start?  Check out these books:

“Make everybody fall out of the plane first, and then explain who they were and why they were in the plane to begin with.” – Nancy Ann Dibble

Hmmm… kinda reminds me of the screenplay from LOST
