DOVER -- The Dover Public Library's literary magazine, Tapestries of Tuscarawas County, has launched its search for submissions for its second volume. The literary magazine encompasses life in Tuscarawas County and hopes to preserve the culture of the county as a part of the library's historical initiative. The magazine is open to submissions from anyone in the county of stories, art and photography, capturing what it is like to live in this community.
Citizens are asked to send in their memories of life in Tuscarawas County, with the chance of winning a cash prize. The library is offering one first-place $100 prize and one second-place $50 prize to the two most appealing stories or art.
As a part of the Dover Public Library's oral and living history project, Tapestries intends to weave together the stories of Tuscarawas County together into one tapestry which conveys the beauty of the county.
A release ceremony will be held at the library in the fall to celebrate the magazine, and contributors will be given a free copy of the book, as well as an opportunity to read excerpts from their work. Copies will be available to the public at the Dover Public Library and other local libraries and historical societies.
The Dover Public Library is located at 525 N. Walnut Street, across the street from Dover High School. For the registration form and submission guidelines, stop in at the library, email editor Kellie Pleshinger at firstname.lastname@example.org, call the library at 330-343-6123, or go to www.doverlibrary.org.
