Writing Contest

Heads up to all you wanna be kid’s book writers.

Here’s an Island writing contest aimed at producing a book of illustrated stories for 9-12 year olds while benefiting The Old School House Arts Centre (T.O.S.H.) in Qualicum Beach, British Columbia.

Stories should be unpublished and in the 1500 word range.  The entrance fee is $10 with the best story taking home a $200 prize. The top ten stories will be published and illustrated by artists-in-residence of T.O.S.H. The profits from the sale of the book will go to support the non-profit arts centre.

Thanks to my colleague Jocelyn Shipley for passing this on. Do be sure to check out her site and her work.
