South-Central Creative Writing Festival

Creative Writing Festivals provide students the opportunity to develop and express their creative writing abilities and skills. Entries with a superior ranking are submitted to the regional creative writing festival. Entries with a superior ranking at the regional level are included in a published booklet.

For more information see Creative Writing Festival in the South-Central Student Activities Participation Guide.
