The Erma Bombeck | Anna Lefler Humorist-in-Residence Program

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

Two humor writers will receive free registration, travel and hotel expenses for the March 24-26, 2022, Erma Bombeck Writers’ Workshop, where they will spend an additional two weeks at the University of Dayton Marriott Hotel to work on their writing projects. It’s the gift of time to write and free room service. Nancy Cartwright, best known as the voice of Bart Simpson, and Mike Reiss, who's written for The Simpsons for 30 years, will choose the two grand prize winners. The package is worth approximately $5,000, but the experience is priceless. Cash prizes for finalists and honorable mentions. Contest runs Sept. 7-28.
