Write Michigan Short Story Contest 


Kent District Library and Schuler Books & Music announce the fourth annual Write Michigan Short Story Contest, the competition that drew over 700 Michigan writers in its third year.

Stories can be submitted at www.writemichigan.org from September 1 through November 30. Writers of all ages can enter, with separate categories for Youth (11 and under), Teens (12-17) and Adults (18 and up).

Details include a 3,000-word maximum length; $10 entry fee for ages 18 and above, free for 17 and under; Michigan residents only; all entries must be submitted online.

Winners are chosen by public vote for the Readers’ Choice award and by a panel of judges for the Judges’ Choice award. Voters and judges choose winners from the top ten semi-finalists. The top honor in each category receives a $250 cash prize. Winning entries will also be published by Chapbook Press.

“Write Michigan is a wonderful opportunity for authors of all ages to get published,” said Heidi Nagel, Communications Manager at Kent District Library. “The young winners are especially excited to see their stories in print.”

Winners will be honored during an Awards Ceremony taking place at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 19 at KDL’s Cascade Township Branch. Adam Schuitema, author of the novel Haymaker and the short-story collection Freshwater Boys, will present the keynote. The ceremony is sponsored by Meijer.

Kent District Library is offering writing events for teens and adults. Details can be found at www.writemichigan.org/events.
