2019 Pasatiempo Writing Contest

A world in your words

When Pasatiempo calls for submissions to its annual writing contest, we never know what we’re going to get. We don’t issue a theme; we ask only for your best writing on any topic — entered as fiction, nonfiction, or poetry. Usually, the writers are from Santa Fe, but sometimes they enter from around the state or even, as in the case of this year’s winning poem, from outside of New Mexico.
