The New Denver Egotist Essay Contest

By / /

We’re overworked and understaffed here at The Denver Egotist, just like you. So in the hope of maintaining the quality and quantity of posts we’ve established here, we’re going to take a stand and do something about it.

The New Denver Egotist Essay Contest is our hair-brained answer to alleviating the load. Maybe you don’t want to write your essay and you’d rather tell us why you’d make a good Egotist in pictures. Forget it, we need writers. Maybe you’d rather try to get to know every great creative director in town by sending your book to them and scheduling an “informational interview.” Forget it, you’re not smart enough to realize you can painlessly connect with them right through our site and use that to your advantage if you choose. Maybe you’d rather report on what’s going on in other creative hot-bed cities. Well, maybe you should just move there, smartypants.
