Summer Writing Contest!
Theme: Humor with a point
Age range: write story for ages 8-12
Word limit: 500 words, so make ’em count!
Deadline: September 15; winner announced by September 30
Additional guidelines: Write a story as if you were writing for a children’s Christian magazine. We’re looking for humor with a message, but the tone should not be preachy. Problems (if any) should be solved by the children in the story. The maximum word count is 500. If your story is shorter than that, we’ll accept it, but stories longer than 500 words will be disqualified.
Send your story, with $10.00 application fee, to Cathy Biggerstaff, 410 Aydlotte Rd., Rutherfordton, N.C., 28139.
The winning story writer will receive a free Two-for-One critique and 2018 Conference admission!
