Calling All Writers!

Holla holla to my creative writers!  Smithies, your time has come:  in celebration of Teen Read Week in October, SPL is having its own WRITING CONTEST! Here're the deets:

Smith Public Library's Teen Read Week Writing Contest:


The Teen Read Week Writing Contest has begun, and this year's theme is "Seek the Unknown".  Teen Read Week runs from October 13th-19th, but we're holding our contest begins now and runs until October 19th!   
Entries will be judged in two age groups, 6th-8th graders and 9th-12th graders, which equals more people having a chance to win!  Sweet! 


  • Short stories only, please - 1500 words or less.
  • Go with our theme: make sure to incorporate the theme "Seek the Unknown" into your writing! Anything from paranormal, to sci-fi and fantasy, to mystery goes! 
  • Include your info:  make sure your name, contact info, and age group (6-8th graders or 9-12th graders) are attached to your story when you turn it in to the teen reference desk.

Stories will be judged by various staff members, and the two winners will each receive a $25 gift card to Barnes & Noble as well as the opportunity to have their story published in the Wylie News and on our library website.
Get writing!  Make sure to get yours turned in for your chance to win!
