Patrick D. Smith Literary Medal -Deadline Extended!

We have EXTENDED THE DEADLINE for our First Annual Patrick D. Smith Literary Medal writing contest!  We are now accepting submissions through August 31!


All the rules and submission requirements can be accessed by visiting 


For more details and information, please contact our office or email us at


Frequently Asked Questions:

  1) By "duo-tang folder", we mean the folder with the three brads in it to bind the paper.  No need to staple them when bound in the folders.


 2) Only the text should be in the binder.  Keep the submission form separate.


3) There is no requirement as to where the 30 pages are from in a larger work.  Typically, one would expect the first 30 pages of the larger work, but it is up to the author to decide.


4)  With the exception of Children's Literature, ALL genres are encouraged to submit!
