According to its Web site, “the next issue of the Louisiana English Journal will focus on Louisianians’ personal stories, observations, and photos of hurricanes Katrina and Rita.” Readers are invited to share personal stories, observations, and pictures. “All who experienced these historic storms–whether as tourists or residents or students–are invited to submit their true stories, poems, and pictures to LEJ. Displaced students and other south Louisianians are especially encouraged to submit their stories.”
Cash prizes ($20-$30) will be awarded in several categories. Submit your stories and poems by May 15, 2006; art and pictures by June 15, 2006. No fee. Find more information and the required Official Entry Form here.
