Tournament of Writers wraps 2020, looks to 2021

By Syd Bastos

The Tournament of Writers, a program of the Vicksburg Cultural Arts Center, will end its 2020 season with a virtual celebration of writers at 5:30 p.m. Jan. 13. The publication of the sixth collection of works, “Small Town Anthology, Vol VI” is also now available to order via Amazon. In prior years, participants, family and friends had the opportunity to attend a book-signing celebration in person. The pandemic prevented this event from happening in 2020.

Winner of the Judges’ Choice award, new in 2020, will be announced at this virtual event and various authors will be reading their works live. The public is welcome to attend this event, broadcast simultaneously via Zoom and Facebook. Readers interested in attending can go to to learn more about the live event, see the list of winners and find links to works of first-place winners. The event will also be recorded and available on the VCAC website. 

The Tournament will open again in the spring of 2021. Improvements in the submission process and virtual writing clinics are in the works now. Readers can follow announcements on the Tournament and other programs of the VCAC on Facebook, email or by calling (269) 200-2223.
