2011 VSA Call for Writing "capture"
Photographs are a way to capture a moment in time, but they leave many questions unanswered. Where was the photo taken? Who are the people? What is happening? Descriptive writing, however, can provide a reader with a more complete picture. The writer crafts a story and invites the reader to experience the moment through rich imagery.
The theme for the 2011 VSA Call for Writing is "capture," which invites you to create a short work of fiction, nonfiction, or poetry that captures a moment in time. Your writing will create the most complete description possible of the moment, providing the reader with a written snapshot.
The call is open to students with disabilities and students who have a connection to people with disabilities. Participants must be between the ages of 11 and 18 years. Students up to age 21 receiving special education services through the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act are eligible to participate.
Deadline: December 1, 2010
