Thurber Cartoon Caption-writing Contest
For this year’s Thurber Treat, writers are asked to pick one from a predetermined group of Thurber cartoons, create a caption for that cartoon, and then elaborate on the caption with a funny story, limited to 1000 words. The three winning authors will be guests of Thurber House for dinner at the Wednesday, June 8 Summer Literary Picnic, and will read their sage or silly entries.
Submissions are due no later than Friday, May 27, by 5:00 p.m.
