Creative writing contest for grades 4-12

The long, winter break could be the perfect time to have your little writer start working on a piece of poetry or fiction to enter in the 2011 Torrance Legacy Creative Writing Awards competition. Contest winners will have their work published in a collection.

Short stories (limited to 1,250 words) and poems will be accepted from Jan. 15, 2011 until August 15, 2011. All works must focus on one of the following themes:

  • Magic of adventure
  • Serendipity
  • Beyond the horizon
  • Unexpected answers
  • Nothing set in stone
  • Creating solutions

The contest is sponsored by the National Association for Gifted Children, among others; however, children do not need to be enrolled in a gifted program to enter.

The Web site I linked to above doesn’t have much posted for the 2011 contest yet, but I assume they will once they are officially receiving entries.
