Rose Post Creative Nonfiction Competition


The Rose Post Creative Nonfiction Competition encourages the creation of lasting nonfiction that is outside the realm of conventional journalism and has relevance to North Carolinians.


Subjects may include traditional categories such as reviews, travel articles, profiles or interviews, place/history pieces, or culture criticism.

The competition is open to any writer who is a legal resident of North Carolina or a member of the North Carolina Writers’ Network.


The first-, second-, and third-place winners will receive $1,000, $300, and $200, respectively. The winning entry will be considered for publication by Ecotone.
