Submitted by parks and fair
Although the San Juan County Fair is a month away — Aug. 15-18 — the deadline for the “Written Word” entries is July 20 — less than a week away. Polish up those writings — prose, poetry, writing for children — from the last two years, and postmark them to Island Writers, San Juan County Fair, POB 1094, Friday Harbor, WA 98250 or email them to email@example.com by July 20.
Check out the fair’s premium book. Island Writers is on pages 36-37. Questions? Call 360-378-4130.
The San Juan Island Library will also host a free evening program “Going for the Blue(s): How to Prepare a Winning Entry at the San Juan County Fair” at 7 p.m., Wednesday, July 25. Learn from fair board members and superintendents what all the fuss is about and how to submit a winning entry. Refreshments are courtesy of the Friends of the Library.
