2014 Biennial
Lorin Tarr Gill Writing Competition

Lorin Tarr Gill, born in 1889, was a newspaper reporter, a fiction writer, and later an editor and article writer for Bishop Museum. She was an active member of the Honolulu Branch of NLAPW. After her death in 1979, her sons Lorin Tarr and Tom asked that donations to her memory be made to fund a contest "to stimulate, encourage, and/or reward excellence in creative writing, and in all fields of literary endeavor."

This fund, which became the Lorin Tarr Gill Writing Competition, is administered by the Honolulu Pen Women Branch and usually held in conjunction with the Biennial Writers' Conference.


The competition was open to all writers in the fields of Fiction, Nonfiction & Poetry.

Cash awards were presented in the following categories:

First Place $125
Second Place $100
Third Place $75
Honorable Mention $25
