Submit your work through the Papagayo email by Nov. 17.
All work must be original and submitted no later than Friday, Nov. 17.
“Last semester the chapbook consisted of about 10 short stories, five poems and 5-10 artworks and this year, I would like about the same or more,” Marrufo said.
Marrufo wants this edition of the Papagayo Project to be the biggest one yet and he really encroaches students or anyone in the community to summit their artwork and stories.
The guidelines of the each entries are as follows: poetry, short fiction and nonfiction are to be under 3,000 words, artwork or pictures of paintings, drawings and others and photography as a JPEG image in black and white.
Marrufo wanted all writers to know that if they feel insecure of their writing abilities that they should participate in the writing workshops available every Wednesday at the Rio Grande campus room A125 from 12-3 p.m.
“You can use the hours at the workshops as community service hours,” Marrufo said.
By coming to the workshops you can knock out a few community service hours that students may need.
All submissions should be attached as a Word document or JPEG, PDF for artwork.
Work must be submitted via email at Papagayyoepcc@gmail.com. Please include your full name, affiliation to EPCC and mobile number in your email.
