Media partners are critical to our efforts to promote each Wadadli Pen Challenge season. So I’ll be shouting out those who’ve been helping us get the word out this season. With a big thank you bow on top.
Notably, thanks to Art. Culture. Antigua for more reasons than one. To the Daily Observer which has been running our notice announcing the 2018 Challenge almost (if not) daily. And thanks to Antiguanice.com which continues to maintain a page for Wadadli Pen year round, and update it with our press releases and notices each Challenge season. Most recently:
Press Release – The Wadadli Youth Pen Prize has, since it first launched its annual Challenge for young writers in Antigua and Barbuda in 2004, depended on its friends – those individuals and businesses that step up to contribute to youth and arts development. This year, one of the first is Art. Culture. Antigua – the arts media online platform – which, shortly after the February 28th submission deadline, contacted us “to once again come on board and contribute to the Wadadli Pen prize packages”. They first stepped forward with a cash contribution in 2017; and step up again, unasked, in 2018. Read full release at Antiguanice.com
And previously the Notice announcing the Challenge:
Write a story or poem, 600 words or fewer and submit by February 28th, 2018 to: email@example.com. Open to Antiguan & Barbudans ages 35 and under.

Thanks to Daily Observer and Antiguanice.com and (these are the ones we’re aware of, but of course) any other media that has been helping us spread the word. We couldn’t do it without you.
