Our awards program has ended for 2021. Start writing for next year!

Creative writing submissions are limited to 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.
