It’s that time of year! Topsham Public Library is now accepting Joy of the Pen submissions.

For those of you who are not familiar with the contest, the Joy of the Pen is a writing competition that is free to enter for year-round Maine residents, both amateur and professional. Prizes are awarded in the following categories: fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, Maine-related nonfiction and teen authored. Submission is online at Winners and honorable mentions are published on the Joy of the Pen online journal and also receive a small honorarium!

A reception will be held on Saturday, November 18th at 1:00PM to announce the winners. Joy of the Pen is sponsored by The Cryer, The Friends of the Topsham Public Library, Just Write Books and the TPL Teen Room.
