Show your creative side in Outside the Lines writing competition

January 22, 2013

Do you have a way with the written word? Then enter Tulsa Community College's Outside the Lines, an annual creative writing contest and anthology with categories open to TCC students, Tulsa high school students and TCC faculty and staff. Submissions are being accepted now through March 1.

The contest will accept writing in two categories: poetry and short prose (including both fiction and creative nonfiction, such as memoir or personal essay).

Submissions are being accepted through this new website funded through a Faculty Innovation Grant. To submit work, follow the instructions on the website.

High school and TCC students are eligible to both win prizes and earn a spot in the anthology. TCC faculty and staff, however, are not eligible to enter the competition or win prizes, but their work is eligible for selection in the anthology.
