Children ages 7-11 are invited to participate in West Regional Library’s 11th Annual Story Writing Contest. Participants are invited to submit one entry. Original stories must be handwritten on 8.5 x 11 inch paper and should not exceed three pages. Both sides of the page may be used, and illustrations are excluded from the total page count. Entries will be accepted through April 24, and prizes will be awarded at a reception on May 21.
Children who want to participate in the contest can learn tips and techniques for telling their best story at an upcoming workshop that will be held April 10 at 6:30 p.m. at the library. Children will "learn to move narration from simply 'telling' what happened, to 'showing' how events unfold.
