Each year CEA-Wisconsin invites incarcerated writers and artists to submit their works for the annual edition of the CEA-Wisconsin Creativity Contest. CEA-W publishes the original prose, poetry, and ink drawings from Wisconsin’s jail, prison, and juvenile facility populations. All levels of writers and artists are encouraged to offer submissions. Authors and artists whose works are selected will each receive two free copies of the booklet.

Encourage your learners to express themselves in drawings (black ink on 8½ by 11 white paper) and writings up to 1000 words including poems, letters, essays, and short stories. Winners are selected from all levels, so urge beginning writers to give it a try. Contest rules and entry forms are published in the September/October issue of the CEA-W newsletter. Submissions are accepted between September 1st and December 1st. The booklet is published in May.
