Tennessee Williams Contests

January 15

Poets and writers invited to participate in Tennessee Williams Birthday Celebration poetry and short story contests

As the Tennessee Williams Birthday Celebration nears, Key West Art & Historical Society invites poets and writers to submit original works for the 2020 Poetry and Short Story writing contests – components of the annual celebration held each March in honor of the Pulitzer Prize-winning literary icon that moved to Key West in 1949 and remained a resident for 34 years.

All poems and stories must reference “The Women of Tennessee Williams,” which can be loosely interpreted. Cost is $20 per submission and is limited to one poem and/or one short story per person. The first-place winner in each contest will be awarded $200 while the second-place winner will receive $100. Submissions will be accepted through March 8, 2020. For full contest information, guidelines, and a submission link visit KWAHS.ORG and click on ‘tickets.’

The Tennessee Williams Museum on 513 Truman Avenue is open daily for self-guided tours 9:30am-4:30pm. For more information, contact Key West Art & Historical Society at 305-295-6616 or visit WWW.KWAHS.ORG.  Your Museums.  Your Community.  It Takes an Island.
