Anoli Creative Writing Contest now open for submissions from Chickasaw authors

Entries are being accepted for the 2014 Chickasaw Nation “Anoli” Creative Writing contest until Feb. 21. “Anoli” is a Chickasaw word meaning “to tell.”

Chickasaw student writers in grades six through 12 and young adults through age 24 are encouraged to enter up to three written works in one or more categories – poetry, short story and essay.

The topic for this year’s contest is “Expressing Yourself Through Art.”

Entries should reflect on what art forms speak to the writer and how art helps the writer speak to the world.

Winners receive cash prizes and medals.

All works submitted must be original and will be evaluated based on artistic form, creativity and how well the work relates to the topic.

Division I entries include grades six through eight. Division II includes grades nine through 12 and Division III includes young adults through age 24 regardless of education level or enrollment.

The contest is free and open to enrolled Chickasaw Nation citizens. Proof of citizenship is required.

Entries can be delivered to the division’s office at 201 N. Broadway in Ada, Okla., or mailed to Chickasaw Nation Arts & Humanities, P.O. Box 1548, Ada, OK 74821.

To learn more or to obtain an entry form, please contact Jennifer Watson in the Chickasaw Nation Division of Arts & Humanities at (580) 272-5520 or email jennifer.watson@chickasaw.net.
