Now Accepting Submissions

Details

Story Shares, a nonprofit organization based in Boston, MA devoted to inspiring reading practice and improving literacy skills, is launching their annual Relevant Reads writing contest. The contest opens August 23, 2016 with a submission deadline of December 31, 2016. The contest is seeking submissions from 1,000 to 10,000 words in a variety of genres including historical fiction, horror/suspense, fantasy, and overall diversity so that every reader is able to find his or her reflection in the books available. The contest also has a “For Teens by Teens” category and accepts submissions by youth under the age of 18 who wish to contribute their unique voices to the organization’s growing library.

Story Shares Relevant Reads contest offers cash prizes ranging from $500 to $3,000, along with publication in both digital and print form. But unlike most writing contests, those who submit their work to Story Shares have a real opportunity to make a difference. The organization has established a broad network of readers across 44 states and 26 countries who are waiting for fresh content to consume. These readers use the stories in Story Shares library, either themselves or together with their teachers, to improve literacy skills.

SUBMISSIONS CANNOT BE ACCEPTED HERE BECAUSE YOU MUST SIGN-UP WITH US. Learn more or apply at www.StoryShares.org/contest. Thank you.
