Writing for a dream prize

Lead Voices hosts writing competition
Lead Voices is hosting a writing competition with entries due on March 31.

Lead Voices is hosting a writing contest from Feb. 1 to March 31. Students can submit any style of writing, poetry, short story and more, for a chance to win a cash prize of at least $20, official prices are not officially set. To enter, scan the Lead Voices QR codes in the halls or talk to sponsor Lois Hardaway in room F211. The entry fee is free and is open to any student at any campus. Entries that are submitted will get posted on the Lead Voices website and on their Instagram page.

“Lead Voices is a club where you can express and enhance your voice,” senior club president Judah Moye said. “It’s an opportunity and atmosphere where you can showcase your skills.” 

The Lead Voices contest is open to any kind of writing format. The club focuses on student expression and encourages members to spread out and find their voices in writing.

“It is a club based centrally on writing,” Hardaway said. “It tends to be mainly on poetry, but it can be on anything.”

Moye chooses to invest time into this club because he’s had bad experiences with his voice being overlooked and underestimated. He wants students to have a space where their voices can be heard and understood.

“From start to stop, the process is beautiful,” Moye said. “The ups and downs, the obstacles, the activities, the events coming up, seeing students smile when awards are handed to them because of their work being out there and their voices being heard; I love that about lead voices.” 

The club has also helped members express themselves, including senior Allison Navarro. 

“I like writing about personal obstacles I’ve had, expressing emotions through poetry and writing about what I observe,” Navarro said. “I have always enjoyed reading poetry because you read in between the lines. It’s always implicit information given and it’s how you interpret it. Poetry is very indirect which I love to think outside of the box when reading and writing.”
