Metamorphoses, the literary and art journal of Cerro Coso, in cooperation with the English Department and the CCCC Foundation, is hosting the annual Met Awards for Creative Writing. The editors are calling for poetry, flash fiction (very short short stories sometimes called short shorts, of between 500 and 1,000 words) and creative nonfiction written by Cerro Coso and local high school students.
First and second place writers will receive a $50 or $25 gift card and publication in the Fall edition of Metamorphoses Online. Honorable Mentions may also be considered for reading and publication.
Participants must be current students of Cerro Coso or one of the many high schools in the college's service area (Bishop, California City, Edwards Air Force Base, Kern River Valley, Mammoth Lakes, Ridgecrest, and Techachapi). Winners will be announced 22 November and invited to the Awards Ceremony and Reading to be scheduled for the end of the Fall semester.
