Feature Friday Film: The Cat Writers’ Association Contest and Conference

Debbie is a professional member of the Cat Writers’ Association. Every year, CWA holds an annual contest and conference. This year, because of the pandemic, the Awards Ceremony of this conference will be virtual. This event consists of the awarding of prizes by sponsors and Muse Medallions, the most prestigious award given by the CWA. To be in the running for this award, you must win at least one Certificate of Excellence in a contest category. This year, Debbie has won 3 certificates in the article, blog, and short story categories. I was thrilled that her blog award was for this blog and my story, Sneaky’s Christmas Mystery. You can find a list of other winners and the award categories at https://bit.ly/CWA2019CertificatesofExcellence.

Here are some videos from last year’s conference that took place in St. Louis, Missouri. They are from the Cat Writers’ Association Facebook page.

Here is President, Deb Barnes, opening up the Awards Banquet.

Here is a video of the presentation of the special awards at the banquet.

If you’re a writer, artist, poet, or any creative who features cats in their work, you should consider joining this pawsome group. Maybe you can win a prize  and meet some talented and cat-loving people at the annual conference when they meet in person next year.

  1. Hi there!

    My name is Nabil, me and my girlfriend Emily are the founders of www.catsprayinginsider.com.

    We’re a Swedish based blog
    following the different trends in cat health in general but enjoy helping people stopping their cats from spraying in particular.

    We’re constantly on the lookout for new things
    on the market – and that’s actually how I found your website.

    I love the stuff you put out and must congratulate you on that! I was wondering
    if you’re offering guest post services – as in one of our professional writers within
    the dog niche draft up a nice blog post, that you may share on your site.

    The article will of course be written by a professional copywriter, with SEO in
    mind (to drive traffic to your website) – and free of charge for you. If we could
    mention our site in an unbiased and natural way – that would be great.

    Let me know what you think! Would love to see if we can create a long-term
    partnership and do lots of fun stuff together in the future that’s beneficial for the both of us!

    All the best,
    Nabil & Emily
