SANFORD - Turn on your computer or sharpen your pencil - Central Carolina Community College's Red Clay Review is seeking submissions for its 2015 edition. Deadline for entries is Feb. 16.

The Red Clay Review is the college's annual literary and visual arts magazine that highlights the talents not only of CCCC students, but also those of the greater CCCC community. Those associated with the college in the past or present as well as past or current residents in the college's service area of Chatham, Harnett, and Lee counties are invited to submit writing and/or two-dimensional art for the Review.

"Destination" is the theme for the 2015 Review, so poetry, short fiction, creative non-fiction, and two-dimensional art related in some way to "destination" can be submitted for consideration. Prizes will be given for the best prose, poetry, and cover art.

The submission guidelines include:
  • No simultaneous submissions.
  • Prose submissions (fiction or creative non-fiction) are limited to 1,500 words and should be typed and double-spaced. No more than two works, please.

"We are very excited about the upcoming destination-themed issue," said Red Clay Review Coordinator Summerlin Page. "Red Clay Review brings the community and college together in a celebration of written and visual arts, and it also offers an opportunity for both seasoned writers and those just starting out to present their work."
