One Book One Town writing contest underway

The One Book One Town Committee at the Fairfield Public Library is sponsoring a writing contest. This is one of the many activities in March building up to the visit of of Station Eleven, author Emily St. John Mandel on March 31 at the Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts at Fairfield University.

Teen and adult writers are invited to submit an unpublished work on the topic of “Losing Technology” in a maximum of 500 words by Feb. 13 via email attachment to [email protected] Make sure that the attachment contains only the title of the work, not the author’s name. Please include a cover sheet with the author’s name, contact information, word count, and title of the piece.

The three top winners will be notified by March 11 and invited to read their works in the Memorial Room at the library on Wednesday, March 18, at 7 p.m. They also will be invited to a special reception with Station Eleven author, Emily St. John Mandel, on March 31. Other entrants will be able to read their pieces on March 18 as well. This is always a wonderful opportunity to hear local writers share their work in the beautiful setting of the library’s Memorial Room.
