Submissions for 2024 are OPEN!
The Robyn Herrington Memorial Short Story Contest is a contest for young writers. The 2024 contest is open to kids under the age of 18 who reside in Alberta or the Northwest Territories.
About the Contest
Writers younger than 18 are invited to submit their original, unpublished written works of fiction to the 2024 Robyn Herrington Memorial Short Story Contest, "In Places Between". There is no entry fee. Ten selected stories will be published in the annual contest book. The author retains copyright.
All entrants will receive a critique from our panel of judges.
Contest Rules and Requirements
Stories are judged on a combination of factors, including professional presentation, originality, ingenuity, entertainment factor, character, plot, spelling, grammar, and other authorial skills.
Ten stories will be selected.
We pay $45.00 for each selected story.
The top ten stories will be printed in the annual In Places Between book. A copy of this publication will be provided to each of the ten winning authors.
