For fifty years now, the annual Utah Original Writing Competition has awarded recognition and cash prizes to some of Utah’s finest writers. These winners attract the attention of the wider literary world to our state and our literary community. Often these winners go on to win national prizes, acclaim and publication. With funds provided by the Utah State Legislature and the National Endowment for the Arts, the Utah Arts Council Literature Program has worked to provide the best possible judges for the competition and the largest possible prizes to the winners. In this, its 50th year, the Utah Original Writing Competition continues to honor those Utah writers who, through their literary excellence, bring recognition and prestige to our state
