I was just thinking that I keep stumbling across LDS creative outlets, and that it might be useful to put a list of these in one place. Here are a few that I’m aware of; please let me know, by comments, of any others that I’m missing and they’ll be added to the list:
The church music contest.
The screenwriting and movie making contest at LDS Box.
Irreantum contest (possibly not continuing).
AML unpublished novel contest.
Meridian, I’m told, may accept submissions if you ask nicely and have something to say.
Deseret Book for music, novels, etc (though perhaps less accessible, as there is not a “contest” or other easy breaking-in point).
BYU Studies for poetry, and an essay contest.
Okay, folks, what am I missing? If I want to write a poem, novel, hymn, rock song, opera, short story, essay, play, musical, or screenplay; paint, draw, lithograph, or sculpt a piece of art; or make a film, short film, animated film, or whatever (I’m sure I’m leaving out a number of possibilities), where are the LDS outlets? Not that I’m intending to do all of the above — for now — but hey, you never know.
