Did you post or do you know someone who did submit to our first-ever Devin Alexander Creative Writing Contest?

Holy Toledo! We have some talented people in Here Women Talk!  The submissions are up and open for voting until midnight April 14. Vote for your favorites (click on the heart () on the green line, directly beneath the titles).

We received 50 eligible submissions

The submission with the highest number of votes in each of the three categories will receive an honorable mention and the author’s bio featured on the Here Women Talk homepage.  Voting will then reopen from April 15 – April 21 between the three honorable mention pieces; the work with the highest number of votes wins the $100 Grand Prize (generously donated by HWT-member Devin Alexander).

Thanks, everybody, for your participation. Huge gratitude also to Devin Alexander for her $100 gift, to HWT-member Chris Lawrence for planting the idea to run this contest, and major kudos to our incredible Coastal Carolina University (“CCU”) interns who devoted countless hours and enthusiasm to make this contest a reality. How did we get so lucky?  We’ve had an outpouring of support for this project, and we’ll surely do it again.
