Writing contest seeks ruminations on diversity

The University of Iowa Council on Disability Awareness (CDA) has extended the deadline for its “Voices of Disability” writing contest to Sept. 30.

“Voices of Disability” encourages creative writing that explores and illuminates topics around the word “disability.” All University of Iowa faculty, staff, and students—as well as residents of the Johnson County area and surrounding counties—are encouraged to submit writings of 1,500 words or fewer. One entry per person; participants do not have to have a disability to enter.

One winner, along with second- and third-place acknowledgements, will be selected in four categories: adult prose, adult poetry, youth prose, and youth poetry. Submissions must be submitted electronically to the CDA.
