  • To encourage young artists to enter musical theater, the National Endowment for the Arts is expanding its Musical Theater Songwriting Challenge from last year’s three-city pilot to a national program available to all high school songwriters working in any musical genre. Applicants submit a recording of an original song that could appear in a musical theater show. Partnering with the NEA in the Songwriting Challenge is the American Theatre Wing along with collaborators Playbill, Inc. and Disney Theatrical Productions.

    High school songwriters should go to the Songwriting Challenge section of the NEA website between October 2, 2017 and the submission deadline of January 5, 2018 to enter the competition. Six regional winners will be selected in February 2018 for a trip to New York City in April to work with professional musicians, singers, songwriters, and producers during an intense weekend of workshops. The performance of their song by those musicians and singers will be judged by a panel of esteemed musical theater artists as the final competition and webcast live. One of the six will be selected as the national champion. Winners will receive scholarships and more.

  • ArtsFest 2018 is magical! Our 3rd Annual ArtsFest Literary Competition is inspired by the Wizarding World of Harry Potter! We're not necessarily looking for the next Rowling, but it's hard not to be inspired by her work, especially the classic literary themes she entwines throughout her novels. The Arts Council of Martin County invites Florida residents to write a short story (up to 2,500 words), or a poem (up to 50 lines) relating to this year's theme "A Rainbow of Gray".

    Deadline to apply: January 15, 2018

  • Swamp Ape Review is a national online literary journal founded and produced by the MFA in creative writing students at Florida Atlantic University.

    The Swamp Ape is a legend that reflects Florida—its mythology, its weirdness—as well as the human desire to create a narrative around that which we can’t explain. Submissions to the Swamp should defy form to the extent that the piece’s creator might be unsure of where it belongs. Across all genres, we encourage pieces with a hybrid or non-traditional nature—works that subvert our expectations of both content and form and unsettle our assumptions of what is possible.
