SCBWI Member Writing Contest
Young writers: Please go to the Share a Story contest page to enter our writing contest. Thanks!
(OPEN TO ALL SCBWI INW MEMBERS – even those with illustrations in the art show. Just don’t write a story about your own illustration)
Thank you to all the illustrators who submitted projects for the 2020 Art Show. The Liberty Gallery display has been postponed, but the writing contest is open for business. Below is a gallery of illustrations. Find one that inspires you!
How did the characters get into these situations? How will they get out? Show off your writing talents! Stories will be posted on the SCBWI INW Blog as part of the Share a Story writing contest. Bios and published books will be included in the post. All posted stories will be shared through SCBWI INW social media. Share your story with our INW community.
Stories and Poem Guidelines:
Stories and poems should be written for a young audience. This includes teenagers.
Short poetry of 4-6 lines for young children, short stories between 400-600 words for chapter book readers, and short stories of 800-1,000 words for MG and YA readers are welcome.
Work will be accepted through the months of April and May.
When a date has been re-scheduled for the Liberty Gallery Art Show, illustrators will select their favorite story/poem to hang with their artwork.
