IVCC Creates Contest

About the Contest

Each year we spot-light the talent here at IVCC and think a little competition is an exciting way to do so. We’ve chosen three loosely defined categories to inspire and capture your creativity: art/photography, writing/prose, and poetry/experimental. We challenge you to make us cry, make us question, or make our hearts swell; we want you to push the boundaries of genre and force us to pull an all-nighter trying (impossibly) to name a winner.
