The Writers in the Attic Program, or WITA, is an annual publication contest for Idaho writers, both emerging and established, to publish work related to a one-word theme chosen by The Cabin. This publication is meant to be platform for building an inclusive community and provoking creativity and experimentation through a love of writing. Work is blind-judged by a local literary notable and selected works are published as part of the Writers in the Attic anthology. Authors selected for the anthology are invited to an annual book launch party and celebration in late August each year at The Cabin for a reading and festivities. Notifications are sent out in early July.
We are currently accepting submissions to our 2018 theme “SONG.” Details on what and how to submit HERE.
Now in its 7th year, past themes have been Game (2017), Water (2016), Animal (2015), Nerve (2014), Detour (2013), and Rooms (2012). To purchase a back-issue of any Writers in the Attic anthology, click HERE.
