Aspiring writers of all ages need an audience. For them, writing competitions always inspire to keep working and introduce with new ideas. First Annual Young Writers Awards is also one of the amazing writing competitions sponsored by the Yale Environment 360 and the Oak Spring Garden Foundation.
The Yale Environment 360 is giving an opinion, commentary, reporting, and discussion on global environmental problems. The award will honor the best nonfiction environmental writing by authors.
Time is admittedly valuable, therefore participate as early as possible, and show your skills by giving an essay or a reported piece that have a personal voice and point of view. Good Luck!!
