Like the ashes of the Phoenix, the Edgar Allan Poe Writing Contest has returned again this year! In our 5th annual competition, all students, grades 7-12, are free to submit a short story that fits the following criteria.
-Stories must be submitted in paper or electronically (email@example.com) to Mr. Fleming by or on November 10th.
-Stories must be an original work of fiction.
-Stories can be of any genre.
-Stories must not exceed 3,000 words and include a word count.
-Stories should be in Times New Roman font, size 12.
Judging will be based on originality and professional quality. All student names are removed from the work prior to judging for unbiased results. All finalists will have their work published on the writing contest blog, ehspoe.blogspot.com. There will be consolation prizes for the finalists, and personalized Poe Awards will be given to the winner and runner up.
Thanks for your interest and good luck this year!
