There's still a ton of time before classes pick back up and your friends are back in town from vacation, which means plenty of downtime for creativity.

Dia de los Muertos: A Celebration of Life Exhibition @ Xico
Xico, a local arts organization created by local Chicano and Native American artists, is looking for artists to add pieces to their A Celebration of Life Festival and exhibition from September 24 to November 5.
Blue Guitar Magazine, a publication that typically showcases creative writing (and poetry in previous years), has opened two competitions for their Summer 2011 edition: a call to writers and a call to artists.
