The Caramelo Writing contest is sponsored by Penn State's Center for American Literary Studies, and it centers around Sandra Cisneros' coming-of-age novel, Caramelo. The novel features an inherited rebozo, or shawl, that has tied generations of family members together.
People can enter the contest in four different categories:
- Best Short Fiction
- Best Poetry
- Best Short Nonfiction
- Best Entry for a Writer Under 18
The Grand Prize Winner will receive $200!
