Write Like Erma

This spring's Erma Bombeck Writers' Workshop sold out in 12 hours, but it's still possible to get a seat. Just win the writing competition.

Capture the essence of Erma Bombeck’s writings, and you could win $500 and a free registration to the sold-out April 10-12 Erma Bombeck Writers’ Workshop at the University of Dayton.

Personal essays of 450 words may be submitted in either the humor or human interest categories until Feb. 17. The piece must be previously unpublished. The entry fee is $15, and four winners will be announced in late March.

In 2012, 525 writers from seven countries and 48 states entered the competition, which is hosted by the Washington-Centerville Public Library in conjunction with the Erma Bombeck Writers’ Workshop.
