Local Writer's Showcase

The annual Essay and Short Story contest, in partnership with Bethesda Magazine, and the Bethesda Poetry Contest will honor local writers!

On April 19 and 20, Bethesda Urban Partnership will host the Local Writer’s Showcase, celebrating writers from Washington, D.C., Maryland and Virginia. Over 700 pieces were submitted to this year’s Poetry, Essay and Short Story Contests as writers competed for a chance to win up to $500, a free class and membership to The Writer’s Center and have their work published in Bethesda Magazine’s July/August issue. Both award ceremonies and readings on April 19th and 20th are open to the public.
