2015 Junior Authors International Writing Contest

  • Proof of age may be required. Writers who are 22 on June 30, 2015 are not eligible to enter.
  • Entries from every country are welcome.
  • Your story can be about anything you like. Be creative, be bold and have fun. We don’t judge the subject of your story, just how well you write it. But remember that it will be judged according to the criteria for a short story. This is not a contest for scripts, poems, essays or other types of writing. Please send your best work. Revise. Edit. No first drafts please.
  • Maximum length is 1,000 words. Your title and contact information do not count toward the 1,000 words. Edit your story down to 1,000 words. Cut all empty or extra words that do not add to setting, plot, or characterization.
  • No images, illustrations or fancy fonts. Keep it easy to read. Not sure which font to use? Try Times New Roman 12 point.
  • Include the following information at the top of the first page of your story.
