Okay Readers, gear up for fun and prizes! If you know any children under sixteen years of age that enjoy writing be sure to keep reading! Nothing says summer like summer reading except summer writing! Many libraries have contests and programs going on right now that emphasize the importance of keeping the brain active by reading books. I think this is a great concept and I'd like to take it one step further by helping kids to stay engaged in their writing during the summer. Any child under sixteen years of age can enter my Summer Short Story Contest! The guidelines are simple: send in a 1.) email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line Tara Michener's Summer Short story Contest 2.) story entries must not exceed 500 words 3.) Please keep content positive 4.)be sure to include contact info such as name, school, email and address. There will be multiple winners of assorted "Who I Am" Merchandise! The deadline for the contest is August 27th! Get ready, get set, start writing!
Read something great!
