This year, as we’ve switched from mailing flyers to schools to emailing schools, we received entries from Contra Costa County schools and local independent schools but NO submissions from Alameda County public schools! To remedy this, we are reopening the contest just to fifth graders in Alameda County public schools with a deadline of April 17. Please urge your local Alameda County public schools to share this information with fifth grade teachers. This contest builds skills and self-esteem for our youngest writers, and they can win money, too!
For more information and to download the flyer, go to http://cwc-berkeley.org/programs-events/writing-contests/5th-grade-story-contest.

Congratulations to one of our newest members, Helene Knox, who won Write Angles’s October Writing Contest for her story “Mouse.” She will be awarded her prize at our next general meeting, which is this Sunday, October 21, at 2:00. Come to see her accept her prize.
Of course you’ll want to come to our next meeting anyway because you’ll want to hear CWC author Judith Marshall talk about Publishing Pathways.
Hope to see you there!
