One week left to enter Rose Post nonfiction contest

Submissions to the annual Rose Post Creative Nonfiction Competition must be postmarked by next Monday, Jan. 16.

The N.C. Writers' Network's annual competition honors nonfiction that's outside the realm of conventional journalism and has relevance to North Carolinians. It's named for Rose Post, who died last year after working more than a half century as a reporter and columnist at the Salisbury Post.

First-, second- and third-place winners receive $300, $200 and $100, respectively. This year's judge is Anne Clinard Barnhill. Check for complete contest guidelines.
