The Peninsula College 2013 Tidepools staff invites submissions of poetry, prose (short stories and essays under 3,000 words), art, photography and original music for publication in the annual literary and art magazine.


Cash prizes are awarded in adult and youth categories for poetry, prose, art, photography and music. The contest is judged blindly and is open to amateur and professional writers, musicians and artists of all ages in Clallam and Jefferson counties.


Tidepools is published annually by Peninsula College students and staff. The magazine consists of contest-winning entries, as well as other submissions selected by Tidepools staff.


Contest entry fees for adults are $5 per submission and youths (0-17) are $2.50 per submission.

Non-contest entries will not be eligible for prizes and do not require an entry fee to be considered for publication in the magazine. Entries not selected by the judges still may be chosen by the editors for publication. Everyone who is published receives a free copy of the magazine.


Submissions may be entered online at www.pencol.edu/tidepools. Submissions through the website are encouraged. Tidepools will continue to accept paper entries, hand-delivered art and music on CD. Paper entry forms are available at the Peninsula Daily News. All submissions must be postmarked by Jan. 11, 2013.


Winners will be announced by March 15, 2013. For more information, contact Michael Mills at 417-7973.
