Williams-Mystic Essay Contest in Honor of Joseph Conrad
Create an essay about the ocean or any major body of water (fiction or nonfiction) using 1000 to 5000 words and submit it for consideration. The essay can be a great story or it can deal with the environment, political activism, history or nature.
The scholarship is sponsored by the Mystic Seaport. They want to encourage young writers to study about and travel on the ocean. Joseph Conrad was a maritime author who wrote both fiction and nonfiction about the sea.
