Wallingford 350 Project

The untitled Wallingford 350 Project is an anthology that uses real events curated by the Wallingford Historical Society from the town's history as a prompt for creative writing.

Writers and artists of all ages are invited to submit creative work through our submissions portal below. Submissions will be judged by a third-party team of readers. Submissions will be anonymous, and judges and editors will not see identifying information until the work is selected for publication.

We highly encourage student submissions from students attending public or private schools in Wallingford or students who reside in Wallingford but attend a school outside town.
