Houston County Library is hosting a Youth Writer's Contest. The contest is open to any student in Houston county that is in 2nd-12th grades that attend private, public, or home school. The contest is open to poetry, prose, and short flash fiction. The deadline for the entry is September 27, 2013. The judging will occur on October 5, 2013. There will be a reception for the winners on Monday October 28, 2013 from 5:30-7:30p.m. at the Houston County Public Library. Please spread the word. I hope this contest encourages students to be creative and expressive in their writing. Who knows...maybe one of these students will be the next Janet Evonvich, Stephanie Meyer, Rick Riordan, or R. L. Stine.
Sharon loves to read mysteries, science fiction, and fantasy. She loves the fact that a book can take you anywhere if you let it.
