Creative Writing Contest

  • creative writing logo
     The Creative Writing Contest gives students a chance to express themselves by writing fiction or non-fiction stories or poetry. There is amazing young talent here in Southwest MN.
     This program was established to encourage the love of language and writing for all students and as a way to recognize the talented young writers in Minnesota. SWWC & SMSU Creative Writing Department have partnered to make this event  possible. We welcome all students in grades 3-12 attending public, private or home schools to enter this contest. This can be the perfect classroom project or students can enter on their own.
