Deadline to enter literary contest now July 22

The deadline for the Porter Fleming Literary Competition has been extended to July 22, according to a release.

Organized by the Morris Museum of Art, the Porter Fleming Literary Competition has four categories -- fiction, nonfiction, poetry and one-act play - and gives $7,000 in cash awards.

The deadline has been extended because some groups of intended recipients did not receive brochures about the competition that were mailed a few weeks ago, according to an e-mail. Winners will participate in a special literary program and awards ceremony during the Westobou Festival on Oct. 1.
