Edna G Writing Contest

The Friends of the Edna G invite you to enter our Edna G writing Contest! Entries can be in any of three categories: Poetry, Essay, or Short Story. Essays or Short Stories must be 2000 words or less, and the entries can be anything about the Edna G; historical fiction, your own perspective of the boat and its meaning, even science fiction if that’s what interests you! Just write about the Edna, or include the Edna as a major part of your work.

Entries will be judged on the quality of writing and how the piece captures the “spirit” of the Edna G. There are no age categories for this contest; anyone of any age is welcome.

All entries will be combined into a book that will be added into the Two Harbors Library inventory and cataloged so that they can be read by anyone with a library card.
