Summer Writing Contest

Your story must contain:

  • An adventure, a confession, and some type of food. Be creative; it does not have to be conventional! Take these terms and use them however they speak to you!
  • 2 pages minimum to 8 pages maximum, double spaced, Times New Roman 12 pt font
  • One paragraph minimum to one page maximum of an authors statement. What inspired you? What was the most difficult part of the process? What was the most fun? How did you incorporate the parameters into your story? Anything else you would like to share about your piece? You do not have to answer all of these questions, simply discuss some ideas behind your work! This is not a strict assignment, it's all for fun and experience! :) 
  • Submit entries as PDF attachments via email,, or drop your piece off at the library (560 South Main Street, West Milton, OH 45383). Be sure to include your name and contact information.
