Alaska writers of all ages are invited to submit a postcard of their
own design, writing about their favorite place in Alaska. Tell us, in
100 words or less, what makes your home, your community, your
classroom, your favorite fishing spot, or even your bookshelf a great
Alaskan place. Postcards must include a picture of the favorite Alaskan
place of the author's design, whether it be an original photograph,
collage, or drawing. Note: because of copyright restrictions, we cannot
accept entries using pictures from magazines or other protected
materials. Winning postcards will be published on LitSite Alaska twice
a year, and their creators will be awarded prizes.Submissions should
include: your age group (preschool, elementary, middle school, high
school, or general public), and a mailing address where we can send
your prize should your entry be selected as a winner.
