This one is for Barbuda

Barbuda Then

If you follow this site, and you are a writer, I hope you remember to check in with the Opportunities and Opportunities Too pages as those are among the regularly updated pages – especially Opportunities Too which is about contest and other submission deadlines. It teases and provides links which I hope you’ll find helpful as you seek opportunities to boost your writing career.

Just added is a post from Friends of Antigua and Barbuda Public Library that’s about more than that. This contest is a timely intervention in the still unravelling tragic post-Irma state of affairs in Barbuda, Antigua’s sister island. It invites teenage Barbudans, scattered across Antigua since the evacuation of Barbuda, to take a cathartic journey on the page and write about home – but this isn’t just about venting but about capturing the unique story of Barbuda.

This contest is part of the build up to the Barbuda Homecoming that I wrote about in my CREATIVE SPACE series (which is a blog series that invites local businesses to boost their brand while boosting local arts and culture).

Read the details of the Barbuda Then contest and other contests on the Opportunities Too page.
