2024 I Write Short Stories by Kids for Kids Publishing Contest Presents 

Publishing is a powerful incentive for learning and is a unique way to validate that a child’s voice should be heard.  Each year, young writers in the 3rd-12th grade all across the globe have the chance to be published authors. This first taste of success can last a lifetime! The iWRITE Non-Profit Organization offers students the opportunity to submit their writing and artwork to our annual publishing contest. This year's theme is Fantasy. Fiction and Non-fiction short stories or articles, poetry, and art submissions are accepted from August 2023 through April 2024. The finalists will be named in September 2024. Our winners will be announced on our website and published in the I Write Short Stories by Kids for Kids 14th Volume Anthology. One hundred and twenty-five winners will be chosen and will receive one complimentary copy of the Anthology. Editor’s Choice Recipients will have the chance to read their work at iWRITE’s Annual Book Signing Celebration and receive additional media opportunities.  

Writing for a fantasy theme is a wonderful opportunity to let your imagination run wild. Whether you're creating a new world from scratch or using existing folklore as inspiration, there are countless possibilities to explore. Don't be afraid to experiment with different writing styles and techniques, as fantasy allows for a great deal of flexibility in terms of tone and structure. With a little bit of creativity and a lot of dedication, you can craft a truly mesmerizing fantasy story that will transport readers to a world beyond their wildest dreams. Your goal as a writer is to allow your reader to relate and feel like they are a part of the story.
