Every spring, Shoreline Literary and Arts Magazine publishes new and innovative art and literary pieces, including contest winners from the fall contest. This is a great way to showcase your work and get the chance to win a $100 prize, of which there is one for each category. Shoreline’s contest is a good way to introduce yourself to a new opportunity as well.

Take a chance and submit writing and art that you may have never published before. If you win the contest in the section you submitted to, it is an awesome thing to put on your resume for the future. Shoreline considers fiction pieces, creative nonfiction, photography and poetry. Please also consider submitting photographs of your physical art including metalwork, pottery and paintings.
