Calling All Westman Writers!
Wednesday July 15, 2020
We know that there are many talented writers among our patrons within the WMRL and we’d love to shine a spotlight on their work!
The WMRL is partnering with the Brandon Sun to invite aspiring authors of any level to participate in our short story contest. Submit an original short story for a chance to have your work printed in the Brandon Sun and receive a prize provided by the library. Both the winner and runner-up in each age category, Children’s, Teen, and Adult will have their work printed. Stories will be judged by both WMRL and Brandon Sun staff on originality and style, as well as grammar and spelling. All topics and themes are accepted, so get creative! However, the Library and the Sun reserve the right to decide if overly gratuitous violence or mature content is unacceptable.
The contest is open to anyone with a WMRL library card and will run until August 31st. Winners will be announced in September. For more specific guidelines, check out the entry forms for each category linked on our Summer Contests page or stop by your local WMRL branch! Best of luck and happy writing!
