The time has come for the writers of Diamond Bar High School to step into a different reality and think about what might be their last words. DBHS’ resident writing club, Inkwell, is holding their first writing contest of the year, giving students the opportunity to write about this somewhat dark subject.

The contest is titled, “My Very Last Words,” and invites students to write about their last words, if they could choose them, and why. There is no entry form needed, and submissions are due via email by Nov. 9th to [email protected], with a maximum word count of 3000 words. Officers of the club will read the stories anonymously and will choose the winner based on the story content as well as quality.

“Hopefully Inkwell will allow some students who have a passion for creative writing to grow and continue their writing path in high school,” President Anabelle Cheng said.

Inkwell is a creative writing club in which students discuss writing techniques, styles, and prompt writing. It is run by five student officers, and club members meet up every other Friday in English teacher Christy Moskovitz’s room (419.)

Students read each other’s works and give each other  feedback to help one another improve their writing. They also have a Facebook group  in which  members post prompts and respond to comments. The Inkwell holds multiple writing contests annually.

The winner of this month’s competition will notified via e-mail and will be awarded a $40 Target gift card.
