EP Writing Contest

Sharpen those pencils! The EP Short-Story Writing Contest starts in one week!

Pencil, Sharpener, Notebook, Paper, Education, Supplies

April 15th marks the opening of our short-story contest. This will be our second annual contest! A few things have changed in the rules, so make sure to check the Short Story Contest page. Entries must be shorter (500-1500 words) and they all must be submitted on Google Docs to keep them looking uniform.

Your story can be fiction or non-fiction, but if you are writing non-fiction, remember that it’s a story contest. Tell a story; don’t just tell about something.

On the contest page you can read last year’s winning stories. One of the first place winners was actually the first to turn in her story, so no need to hold out till the end. Our judges would appreciate not getting half the stories on the last day!

Submissions will be accepted from April 15th to May 15th. The registration link will appear on the contest page during that time. You’ll register once you have your story ready. I can’t wait to see your entries. Our stories last year got thousands of readers!

Have fun and get writing!

Short Story Contest Rules

P.S. I’m looking for HTML5 coders to replace Flash games on our Math Facts and Thinking pages. Code must be in html/css/javascript. Copyright must be respected. I’ll buy each activity for $25. They can use same game type for multiple activities (such as addition to 5, to 10, etc.) with just a little adjusting, but do something to mix it up to keep it interesting. All activities should be hosted on Github.
