Blackbird Academy of the Arts is a nonprofit arts education program based in Conway, and until November 15, they will be accepting submissions for the Alchemy Songwriting Competition and Showcase. Songs in any genre will be judged and placed into two age groups (13 to 17, 18 and up), and a showcase concert will be held on December 3 at Hendrix College, where finalists will be invited to perform their song.

Proceeds from the competition, including entry fees, sponsorships, and showcase tickets will benefit Blackbird Academy. Entry form, rules, and other information is available and
