Hear that beat? That should have been the quickening heart rate of all Island Writers preparing your entries to the drumbeat of the 2018 Rockin’ the Salish Sea San Juan County Fair.

But wait, it’s not too late. Although the fair is a month away — August 15–18 — the deadline for the written word entries is July 20 — less than a week away. Quick, polish up those writings — prose, poetry, writing for children — from the last two years, and postmark them to Island Writers, SJC Fair, POB 1094, Friday Harbor, WA 98250; or email them to by July 20.

Check out the premium book: Island Writers (Z — as in ZZ Top?) is on pages 36. Questions? 360-378-4130.

If writing isn’t your thing, and you would like to enter something else in the fair, the San Juan Island Library will host a free evening program, “Going for the Blue(s): How to Prepare a Winning Entry at the San Juan County Fair” on Wednesday, July 25 at 7 p.m. Learn from fair board members and superintendents what all the fuss is about and how to submit a winning entry. Refreshments are courtesy of the Friends of the Library.
