Write and Win

by Alexandra May - 1 Comment(s)

If you're 15 or younger, you can enter the Children's Fiction Writing Awards - and get published!

Winning stories will be published in an anthology. Your biography and photo will be in there too, so start practicing your Top Model smile. But hurry - the deadline is October 10th.

In the 12-15 year old category, stories need to be at least 3000 words (about 6 pages).

The stories must fall within one of the following genres: Science Fiction, Fantasy, or Mystery. So if your story has vampires, spaceships, or secrets, you're good.

Check out the Calgary Book Fair site for details.
