2019 Marblehead Festival Of Arts Writing Contest

All Massachusetts writers are invited to submit their best work to this year’s Marblehead Festival of Arts writing contest. An annual tradition for over 50 years, our festival celebrates the best of the arts in a weeklong series of events and arts competitions honoring our state’s cultural traditions. The literary component of the festival celebrates Massachusetts-based authors of distinction through lectures, panels, and other initiatives.

By entering our writing competition, you are supporting the festival’s mission to promote and foster the arts in Marblehead and surrounding communities. As in years past, the contest will recognize the strongest submissions, as deemed by our esteemed judges, with first and second place cash prizes and honorable mentions in each category (fiction, creative nonfiction, and poetry).
