COGMeenu Kaur, Student Editor-in-Chief of COG magazine (a publication of Cogswell Polytechnical College, sent the following invitation to Guild members to submit short stories and creative non-fiction.

I’m reaching out on behalf of COG (www.cogzine.com (Links to an external site.)) as we have identified fiction authors from within groups like The Guild tend to submit high-caliber work. Please consider sharing news with your writers regarding the COG Page to Screen Awards, judged this year by Daniel Handler (AKA Lemony Snicket). The contest closes March 31. The winner will receive:

  • Publication online and in the print issue, as well as a $250 prize.

  • A blurb about your short story by Daniel Handler.

  • Your story adapted as an animated short film, 2D animation, graphic novel or series of interpretive illustrations by students in Cogswell (Links to an external site.)‘s celebrated Digital Art & Animation program.

“A literary contest is like a full moon. It casts a striking and comforting glow across the bleak sky, and turns a small number of people into werewolves.”
