Free Press to partner with Contrast

(Atticus Rice / McDaniel Free Press).

The Free Press is excited to announce a new partnership with Contrast, McDaniel’s literary magazine and purveyor of the literary arts.

We’ll be working closely to bring you the latest creative short stories and poems written by McDaniel students. Each issue, we’ll publish a creative writing prompt for you to respond to, and you’ll have one month to submit for the chance to be published.

Feel free to come to Contrast weekly meetings on Thursdays at 9 p.m. in Hill 208 to workshop your writing and receive feedback from fellow creative minds on campus.

Email your submissions to Winner(s) will be chosen based on the discretion of Contrast editors Marya Topina and Emma Driban.

This month’s prompt: Describe something ordinary in an unrelated genre style. For instance, you could describe your dorm room in the style of an epic fantasy, a squirrel in the style of a western, your breakfast in Glar as a steamy romance, or an academic building on campus in the style of a sci-fi thriller.

Please submit either a short story no longer than 500 words or up to 50 lines of poetry.
