Joyce, Burns, Thomas, McCourt. The Celtic tradition is rich with writers and storytellers. Celticlounge.com is encouraging a new generation to submit their stories and enter a unique competition called "Write On!" Entries may be in short story or in essay form, on any subject, not to exceed 1200 words. Celticlounge.com will present the winner with a grand prize of $1,000.
Entrants need only log onto CelticLounge.com and join this growing community. Membership on CelticLounge.com is free and open to anyone 21 years of age or older. The contest will run from January 1, 2008 through March 16, 2008. The next great writer will be announced in time for St. Patrick's Day, March 17, 2008.
An additional $500 prize will be awarded to the most popular story voted on by members of CelticLounge. Celticlounge.com is not just a community space but features its own member driven webzine. The search for the next great writer is an ongoing effort to sidestep the often-exclusive literary-industrial complex and provide an outlet for new and established writers.
"Write On!" is sponsored by Celtic Crossing Liqueur.
