Author Amy Huntley Discusses Writing and Announces the Winners of the 2010 Teen Short Story Contest
We're celebrating the Finalists of the library's Teen Short Story Writing Contest with author Amy Huntley, who will discuss her work and announce the winners, at the Downtown Library, May 22, 1:30 - 3:00 pm. Amy's book The Everafter received a William Morris Award for best debut novel. We received 253 stories this year in grades 6 through 12. The stories are judged anonymously first by a panel of screeners, and then on to a slate of published authors. Feedback is always filled with praise about the creativity and expression of these stories and we applaud the courage and skill of all the writers' submissions.
