Announcing the Able in This Diverse Universe Essay Competition

That’s right! Four Paws for Noah has a third writing competition under its banner and it goes live today. This contest is for nonfiction essays focusing on ableism, disability, access and overcoming. Noah has faced all these themes in his daily life.

You can read more about the how and why of this competition on the Submittable page. I hope you will submit your work. Voices are needed on these issues. This is an opportunity to share yours. First place walks away with a cash prize of $250.

As an added incentive, one random participant will be selected to receive consultation/feedback on a research-based personal essay of 20 pages with head judge Karrie Higgins. This prize has an estimated worth of $350.

Permission to publish the top pieces in a Four Paws for Noah fundraising anthology bearing the same title as this competition will be requested. Writers retain all rights to their work and can decline to participate.
