Summer Writing Contest 2020

Write Summer Online Writing Camp for Kids_ Connecting Kids to Professional Writers


In June and July of 2020, we hosted our Write Summer Camp and Writing Contest.

Dozens of kids aged 7 to 14 were brought together with professional writers to help them develop a passion and aptitude for writing.

At the end, they produced a short story that was entered into our contest.


We received excellent submissions, and after much deliberation, our judges selected the following winning stories, all of whom will receive a $25 cash prize. Congrats writers, and congrats to ALL who entered!
