There are presently no open calls for submissions.

Flagstaff Cultural Partners invites submissions for the High Desert Dispatches Writing Contest. Submissions are open April 15-July 15 and will be accepted online only at culturalpartners.submittable.com/submit. Please submit up to 6,000 words in fiction or nonfiction, or up to three poems. Judges are Viola Award winners Mary Sojourner (fiction), Ann Walka (nonfiction), and Jill Divine (poetry).

The contest is open to residents of Coconino County and members of the Hopi and Navajo Nations, ages 18+. A $200 cash prize will be awarded to each genre contest winner along with publication in one of the local art magazines. Winners will read their work at an event presented by Flagstaff Cultural Partners at the Coconino Center for the Arts or elsewhere. In order to cover program costs, there is a $10.00 fee for each contest submission.
