Last week to enter the W2I Summer writing contest!

Write2Ignite Conference for Christian Writers of Literature for Children and Young Adults

There’s still time to entire the Write2Ignite Summer Story 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.
