Calling all aspiring Burlington writers—embark on a literary adventure and let your creativity soar!

Burlington Public Library’s annual writing contest, Write Here Write Now, runs May 1 to 31. They invite everyone ages 10 and older who lives, works, or attends school in Burlington to unleash their storytelling prowess and enter their creative work.

This year’s theme, “Journeys of Discovery,” offers a boundless array of interpretations. Let your imagination roam freely within the theme, whether you imagine a physical odyssey, delve into an emotional voyage, or explore the realms of self-discovery or new worlds.

Our contest features three exciting categories: short stories, poems, and comics, each judged by age group: 10-12, 13-17, and 18+. Last year, we read nearly 200 entries across these categories, revealing an impressive array of talent in our community.

We are seeking unpublished and original works sparked by your imagination. The entry deadline is Friday, May 31, so mark your calendars and start crafting your masterpieces!

A team of dedicated contest judges will carefully select one winning entry from each age and contest category. The winners will receive a $100 cash prize, along with the admiration of our community for their storytelling achievements.
