Submissions are now being taken for the 2010-11 edition of Milestone, the biennial art and literary review published by Southwestern Community College. All residents of Jackson, Macon, Swain counties and the Cherokee Indian Reservation, as well as SCC students and alumni, are eligible.
To celebrate the review’s 12th anniversary, the Milestone staff will publish a commemorative edition of the magazine. Along with new material from local artists, this special issue will provide a retrospective of the past 12 years of publication, tracing the history of the project through its stages of growth, and will also recognize the contributions of all individuals and organizations that have supported the periodical since its inception.
First- and second-place cash prizes will be awarded in three categories: poetry, prose (short story or nonfiction works), and visual arts, including photography. In addition, one cash prize will be awarded for cover art.
Monetary contributions to Milestone may be made by check, payable to the Southwestern Community College Foundation. Donations may be sent to Sonja Haynes, Director; SCC Foundation; 447 College Drive; Sylva, NC 28779. Contact Owen Gibby at 828.339.4314 or Toni Knott at 828.339.4325.
