Dyslexic Advantage

Karina Eide Young Writers Awards

Apply by FEBRUARY 14th, 2021!

Karina Eide Young Writers Awards WILL take place in 2021.

We are extended the deadline to February 14th, 2021 because of all the changes due to the pandemic. Remember, it’s 17-700 words. We accept poems, short stories, fan fiction, and excerpts from longer works. Works are judged on ideas, storytelling, humor, feeling, and writing strengths, and not on technical aspects such as spelling. Works may be dictated to a parent or friend, but they must be the creative work of the student. This is a dyslexia talent award, so students must be dyslexic to apply.

Because winners will be published in our general newsletter, winning entries must be family-friendy, without content that could be seen as discriminatory against any group or inappropriate for some people, including children.
