This contest is for writing in fiction, non-fiction, or poetry. The anthology recognizes writers who best evoke a connection to William Allen White, ‘The Sage of Emporia'. In his time as editor of The Emporia Gazette, White published fiction, non-fiction, and poetry and became known around the world. Red Rocks, his home in Emporia, remains as a state historic site honoring his legacy. The William Allen White Community Partnership board began the annual publication of Arterial Ink in 2021 as a means of contributing to the operation of the home and is now calling for submissions for Volume II. White's life was many-faceted. We welcome submissions interpreting that connection in many ways: historical, cultural, political, or personal importance, whether literal, imaginary, or metaphorical. Winners in each genre will be published in Arterial Ink: A William Allen White Legacy, Volume II, and will have the opportunity to deliver their winning entries at the William Allen White Legacy Day celebration in Emporia, Kansas on October 1, 2022. The competition is open to all writers regardless of geographical location. Submissions may not exceed 3,000 words. For consideration, please send up to three entries to: William Allen White Community Partnership, Inc., 917 Exchange St., Emporia, KS 66801, ATTN: Arterial Ink 2022 or submit your entry here.
