The Tidepools staff is seeking submissions of poetry, prose (short stories and essays of fewer than 3,000 words), art, photography and original music for publication in the annual literary and art magazine.
Tidepools is published annually by Peninsula College students and staff, and is sponsored by the Peninsula College Associated Student Council and the Peninsula Daily News.
The magazine consists of contest-winning entries, as well as other submissions selected by Tidepools staff.
The contest is judged blindly and is open to amateur and professional writers, musicians and artists of all ages in Clallam and Jefferson counties.
Everyone is encouraged to submit their art pieces to be considered for the 49th edition of Tidepools.
All submissions must be postmarked by Jan. 11.
Winners will be announced by March 15.
Cash prizes are awarded in adult and youth categories for poetry, prose, art, photography and music.
Each adult category has a $100 prize for first place.
Second and third place are guaranteed publication.
Each first-place youth category has one $25 prize.
Contest entry fees for adults are $5 per submission, and youths, up through 17 years old, are $2.50 per submission.
Everyone who is published receives a free copy of the magazine.
Non-contest entries will not be eligible for prizes and do not require an entry fee to be considered for publication in the magazine.
How to submit entry
Entries that are not selected by the judges may still be chosen by the editors for publication.
Submissions may be entered online at www.tidepools.student.pencol.edu. Submissions through the website are encouraged.
Tidepools will continue to accept paper entries, hand-delivered art and music on CD.
Paper entry forms are available at the PDN, 305 W. First St.
