Significant Objects Writing Contest Submissions

September 15 to October 23, 2014       5 PM


Significant Objects Writing Contest Submissions (Voting October 28 through November 16!). Enjoy writing? Help the Windsor Historical Society bring an historical artifact to life! The Society is hosting a contest that asks writers to weave together a story about Windsor and a story about an object – this year, a pocket watch, available for touching and viewing at the Society. Authors must intertwine this pocket watch and Windsor in a 500-word submission in any genre (creative fiction, non-fiction, poem, letter, etc.). Submissions will be accepted until Thursday, October 23rd at 5 p.m., then reviewed by the Society and judged based on creative use of language, Windsor connections, and overall quality. Up to five writings will be posted on the Society’s Facebook page for public voting. The Facebook voting deadline is Sunday, November 16 at 9 p.m. To vote on Facebook, “like” your favorite entry. The top three “liked” entries will receive prizes. Prizes: 1st place - $100; 2nd place - $75, 3rd place - $50. Email your submission to Christina Vida at For more information, criteria, and contest details, contact the Society at 860/688-3813.
