Do you like to write?
Do you have an ancestor whose story is just begging to be told? A fascinating tale of local history? How about that memoir you've been meaning to start for your loved ones?
Now is the time to start your writing engines!
SCGS is proud to sponsor the 16th annual GENEii Family History Writing Contest. Entries must be received between November 1 and December 31, 2015.
We're calling for non-fiction articles that describe family or local history and capture a family experience or the character of a locality, or non-fiction character sketches or memoirs that give a sense of an individual's character and personality.
The writing contest offers prizes in two categories:
Category 1: Articles of 1,000-2,000 words in length.
Category 2: Articles of 1,000 words or less.
Both categories are for family history or local-history stories, memoirs, or character sketches. Submissions may be either unpublished or previously published.
Each entry must be submitted via e-mail in digital format with the cover letter in the body of the e-mail.
