Short story contest for kids ages 11-13

BERTIEWriters ages 11 to 13 are invited to submit short stories to The Bertie writing contest.

Stories should be 1,500 words or less and must include an inter-generational aspect — at least two characters from different generations.

The contest is organized by local author Lisa Lewis Tyre, author of the acclaimed middle-grade novel Last in a Long Line of Rebels. Entries will be judged by a group of Atlanta-area children’s authors. Cash prizes will be awarded.

The submission deadline is April 1.
