Writing Competitions

Our club hosts writing competitions most Fall and Spring semesters thanks to the generous sponsorship of Norco College ASNC and ICC. All eligible entrants must be Norco College students. Each written piece will be edited by the advisors and editors of Clear Perspectives: Publication.

Stay tuned for dates and details for future writing competitions!


  • Contestants must publish work in the Clear Perspectives: Publication monthly edition. Competitions are open to various creative writing styles, such as poetry, articles (Informative or argumentative), short stories, comics, monologues.  
  • All pieces must adhere to the 2000-word count to qualify for a top 3 prize. Submissions over the word count will be published on the site, but will not be eligible for a prize.
