The Writer’s Eye Literary Competition
Connecting Writers with the Creative Vision of Artists
The Writer’s Eye Literary Competition is Creative York’s annual writing competition. This competition links the inspiration of writers with the creative vision of artists. Participants are asked to view a specific exhibit, often held during the fall in our main gallery, and write a poem or short story in response. This competition is open to anyone in 4th grade or above and entries will be judged based on age categories. Winners get the chance to read their piece aloud at our awards ceremony, as well as be published in our Writer’s Eye booklet! Our 2021 winners booklet can be purchased while visiting our gallery.
Creative York offers free gallery tours for groups of 5-24 people who would like to learn more about the exhibition on display before writing their piece. If you would like to schedule a gallery tour, please contact us at 717-848-3200 or email Amber Wiesberg at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The 2022 Writer’s Eye Literary Competition is paired with the One Earth exhibit that will be on display in the Kerlin Gallery at Creative York. View the brochure and entry form.
