To encourage participation and recognize our community of writers, Louisiana Words now ranks writers based on activity on the blog.
1-3 contributions - Newcomer
4-11 contributions - Veteran
12-19 contributions- Rising Star
20 + contributions - Allstar Nominee: an Allstar nomination gives the writer an opportunity to compete in the Louisiana Words Allstar competition, starting in 2019 and recurring after that.
***You do not necessarily have to have 20 contributions to achieve an Allstar nomination. You may have and can read at Louisiana Words: The Series (2013-2014, returning in 2019) multiple times, managed Louisiana Words at one time, or contributed other art to “Rhythms & Visions” multiple times. You need to at least a be Rising Star contributor in addition to these criteria.***
