Writing Contests for All Ages!

Every year, I encourage my daughter to enter competitions in writing and other creative disciplines. Today, I am sharing a few links to some of my favorite sites. You will find contests for all ages. Enjoy, participate, and feel free to add some of your own!

Hoagies' Gifted Education Page: Here you will find a ton of academic and creative contests for gifted children.

Letters About Literature: This is a youth writing contest born out of a reading promotion program by the Center for the Book in the Library of Congress. Letters About Literature is presented in partnership with Target.

National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo): NaNoWriMo is a month-long challenge to complete a novel in 30 days which takes place every November. There is an adult and youth competition.

Writer's Digest: On this webpage, you will find a variety of contests for adult authors in a variety of genres.

Keep your pen to the paper! Remember, inspiration is everywhere...
