In conjunction with the 33rd Anniversary of DubuqueFest Fine Arts Festival (May 20-22, 2011), the Dubuque Area Writers Guild will publish The Dubuque Youth Gallery, an open genre anthology showcasing the art and writing of the young Dubuquers.

The Guild invites entries from anyone with ties to Dubuque who is 18 or younger this year.

Writers selected for publication will be invited to read from their published pieces at a reception held at the Dubuque Museum of Art, Friday May 20, 2011 at 7 PM during DubuqueFest. Each published individual will receive one complimentary copy of the anthology.

Additional copies will be available for purchase during the reception, at the Dubuque Museum of Art, and at River Lights Bookstore in Dubuque. The public is invited to attend the reception and reading, and encouraged to purchase copies of The Dubuque Youth Gallery.
