Entries for ISWNE's editorial-writing contest are due Feb. 1

The International Society of Weekly Newspaper Editors is inviting newspapers to enter its annual Golden Quill contest by Feb. 1.  Any paper that publishes fewer than five days a week may enter. 

Entries must have been published during 2021, and should reflect ISWNE's purpose: "Encouraging the writing of editorial or staff-written opinion pieces that identify local issues that are or should be of concern to the community, offer an opinion, and support a course of action."

Here are instructions from the ISWNE website: "Select up to four best editorials or signed opinion pieces from your newspaper. One person can have two different entries. Each entry is one editorial. A newspaper can have up to four different entries."

The 12 best editorials will be reprinted in Grassroots Editor, ISWNE's quarterly, refereed journal. The Golden Quill winner will receive a travel stipend of up to $500 to attend ISWNE's annual conference this summer at the University of Kentucky in Lexington July 20-23.
