First Annual Writing Contest

Happy New Year!

Here at Talkback4teens, we never stop thinking of new ways to add voices to the conversation. We recognize that not everyone wants to write articles or essays. That’s just not everyone’s thing! Some of your voices are more…creative, which is why we decided to create our first annual creative writing contest.

Because it’s our first contest, we’re not going to limit our submissions by genre. Please write about any topic you are interested in, whether it’s science fiction, romance, or horror.

Rules

Age: 12-17

  • 3,000 words
  • Place a header on each page with your name, age, school.
  • Attach a title page with your story’s title, your name, age, school, and contact information. Under contact information, please include a phone number or email address that you can be reached at. You are allowed to put your current teacher’s email or phone number in place of yours.
  • 12 pt font, Times New Roman, with one inch margins.
  • Please double-space your work and include a word count at the end.

Age: 18-24

  • 5,000 words
  • Place a header on each page with your name, age, school.
  • Attach a title page with your story’s title, your name, age, school, and contact information. Under contact information, please include a phone number or email address that you can be reached at.
  • 12 pt font, Times New Roman, with one inch margins. Please double-space the entire story (header not included) and include a word count at the end.

Please email all submissions to tmanon@talkback4teens.com with your full name in the subject. 

Prizes

The winner of each age group will receive one $50 Visa gift card. We will also be collecting the top five from each age group to collect into a publication. All published writers will receive a free copy of the book.

All ages may begin submitting titles Jan 3 at noon. We will stop accepting submissions May 1 at 11:59p. Authors can submit as many stories as they would like, but must ensure that all works fit guidelines.
