The iWRITE Non-Profit Organization offers students in the 3rd-12th grades the opportunity to submit plays (stories), songs (poetry), and artwork to our annual publishing contest called, I Write Short Stories by Kids for Kids. 100 students each year are selected for publication and honored at the iWRITE Annual Fall Event where they walk the red carpet and autograph books for attendees. All winners receive their own hardback anthology and gifts from our sponsors 

This is a great opportunity for children to see their work professionally published and available at bookstores and online at Amazon.com and Barnes&Noble.com. Being published at a young age is great for future resumes and applications! All profits made from the sale of I Write books are used at the organization to run our programs and get free I Write Anthologies into the hands of students at low-income schools.

Join our group of published kids and be sure to submit your online applications by March 31st. First-round submissions are accepted November through March 31st. The finalists will be named in September. Winners will be announced on our website and published in the next anthology, released in the wintertime.
