Teen Short Story Contest in Its 21st Year!

The Teen Short Story Contest has come of age, in this its 21st year! 'It's All Write!" cosponsored by the Friends of the Ann Arbor District Library and AADL is a contest open to middle and high school writers in grades 6 - 12, with submissions being accepted starting January 28, and running through March 15, 2013.

You’ll have seven weeks to perfect that short story, and guidelines are easy to follow. When you’re ready, just send your story to allwrite@aadl.org

You can read previous winning stories here or check out writing resources that might be helpful.

1st Place Winners receive ($250), 2nd Place ($150) and 3rd Place ($100) in these three categories: Grades 6-8, Grades 9-10, and Grades 11-12

A panel of published authors will judge the stories. The Awards Ceremony, this year featuring award winning author A.S King, will be held Saturday, May 11, 2013 at the Downtown Library.

Good Luck!


I wish there had been a contest like this when I was a teenager, back where I used to live
