It is with great enthusiasm that we invite you to know the result of the effort that the writers’ group, Seattle Escribe has created in collaboration with the Consulate of México in Seattle to promote literary talent and encourage the development of creative writing in Spanish in our state.
Seattle Escribe invites to its first literary contest in Spanish, which is open to all those who write in Spanish, and who reside in the state of Washington.
The reception of the manuscripts will be open from March 15 to May 15, 2017.
Of all the writings received, 40 works will be selected 40, whose prize will be the publication of his work in the first anthology created by Seattle Escribe.
The authors of the 10 best manuscripts will be invited to participate in a literary creative writing workshop given by a Spanish Speaking literary personality.

We invite all media to promote this contest. It is our greatest interest that writers from the state of Washington participate and have the opportunity to show their talent and literary ability in the Spanish language.
Spanish is the second most spoken language in the United States. We want to encourage native speakers as well as Spanish lovers to share their vision and cultural and ethnic heritage through the written word.
