Program Description

Do you like creative writing? Adults and teens are invited to submit an original short story for the chance to win a prize and have your story published on our website! We'll pick one adult winner and one teen/tween winner; ages 10 and up are welcome to submit.

Stories should be no longer than 2500 words. Stories must be typed and emailed as attachments to by Friday, March 31. Paper copies will not be accepted. Winners will be chosen in April. Please include your full name and contact information with your submission.
