Deadline: November 16 Comstock Winner gets: $25 Gift-card
Contest Description from Sue: Hi, All – We’re going to kick off our first “literary magazine” event with a writing contest. I’ve attached the details above, and the website is http://www.adventurewrite.com/kids/contest.html . Basically, the stories must start with “So there I was” followed by “in” or a verb ending in ing. Stories should be suspenseful and mysterious, not gory. They should end with a lesson and be 1500 words or fewer. The school contest deadline will be Nov. 16. The Comstock winner will receive a $25 gift card. I will also send on the stories from interested students to the bigger competition where they could win $50 and publication on the web. I’ll put copies of the attached entry form in your boxes. Please have students staple or paperclip the school entry form to their writing. Thank you for encouraging your students to write!
