Writing project seeks submissions

The Pen the Kenai community writing project seeks submissions from Kenai Peninsula residents. Pen the Kenai is a companion to the Paint the Kenai community mural project, where artists from around the peninsula are invited to paint a mural tile that represents the artist’s take on “Life on the Kenai.” Pen the Kenai asks peninsula residents to represent what “Life on the Kenai” means to them. All submissions will be displayed with the murals at the visitors center in Kenai. Semi-finalist submissions will be selected to be published in a Paint/Pen the Kenai book to commemorate the projects, and one winning writer will be chosen to have her or his submission put on permanent display with the mural.

Entries may be in the style of the writer’s choosing, but may not exceed 500 words. Only one entry per writer is allowed. Entries are due by midnight April 15. Send work to redoubtreporter@alaska.net, with “Pen the Kenai” as the subject line. Open to current Kenai Peninsula residents of all ages, there is no entry fee for Pen the Kenai. For information, contact Jenny Neyman at redoubtreporter@alaska.net or (907) 394-6397.
