Write Outside Yourself: Haunts and Horrors
The UVU University & Community Writing Centers are accepting submissions for Vol. IV of Write Outside Yourself. Student writers in Utah junior high/middle or high schools may submit original works of writing for a chance to be guided through the publishing process, published in a print and online journal, and recognized at a celebration in June 2017.
Authors whose stories are accepted will receive a copy of the journal and are eligible to receive additional honors celebrating the merit of their newly-published works.
