Share a Story Writing Contest for Children and Teens
The Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators is an international organization offering creative support to writers and illustrators working on books for children and teens. The SCBWI Illustrators of the Inland Northwest created pieces for a Liberty Gallery Art Show that was scheduled for April and May. Due to the current health crisis, the gallery display has been postponed. but SCBWI found a way to share the artwork and lift community spirit.
Share a Story is a writing contest for young writers in the Inland Northwest. Children and teens are invited to visit the SCBWI contest page to view our illustrators’ work. When they find a piece that inspires them, they’ll write a story or poem. Then, they’ll send it to SCBWI. We’ll share a selection on our website every week through April and May.
All participants will receive coloring and activity sheets. Young authors of the stories we share on InlandNorthwest.SCBWI.org will receive a brand-new book. Books will be mailed from one of our local Inland NW Bookstores. SCBWI wants to share some stories too!
If you know a young person that loves art and stories, please invite them to visit our contest page and share their creativity with our Inland Northwest community.
