The Writer’s Eye Literary Competition links the inspiration of writers to the creative vision of artists. The 2020 Writer’s Eye Literary Competition invited participants to select a piece of artwork from Creative York’s Hope and Resilience exhibit and write a poem or short story in response. This annual competition is open to students in grades 4 through 12, college students, and adults. First, second, and third-place ribbons are awarded in each age category and winning works are announced in the spring.
