The Teen Short Story Contest officially begins today and runs through March 16, 2012.
You’ll have seven weeks to perfect that short story you’ve had this idea for, but just have never finished. Guidelines are easy to follow and when you’re ready, just send your story to allwrite@aadl.org
AADL’s short story writing contest just hit it’s 20 year.

A panel of published authors will judge the stories. The Awards Ceremony, featuring author Caitlin Horrocks, a winner of the 1997 short story contest, will be held Saturday, May 12, 2012, at the Downtown Library.

WOW THIS LOOKS AMAZING!
Im verry exited about entering a real contest but i was wondering does the story itself have to be finished?


The contest is over for this year, all except the Awards Ceremony held on May 12th. We had 350 entries, but it looks like we'll be sponsoring this conest again next year. Publicity goes out the first of the year. There is a list of writing resources and other places to send your work linked from our website. You could have an ending that is not clear cut, leaves something to the imagination, but yes, an ending or a 'finished' story. Good luck with your writing.
