Annual writing contest back


September 13, 2017

The Fort Vancouver Regional Library District (FVRL) is having its annual “Imagined Ink” writing contest for tween and teen wordsmiths and is encouraging kids from Goldendale to submit their stories for a chance to win.

Online submissions began on Sept. 1 and the deadline for submissions is Oct. 1. The rules for entries requires submissions to be an original story— or written work—by a contestant that is 1,000 words or less. It can be any story genre or topic, but must be written in English and there is only one entry per person.

The contest is open to youths in grades 6-12 who attend school or live in the FVRL district. Winners will be selected for middle school and high school categories, and there will be second, and third place winners, and honorable mentions, for stories selected by a panel of judges.

Selections for winners will be presented at the Awards Ceremony Oct. 21 at the Vancouver Community Library at 2 p.m.

Malinda Lo, award-winning author of young adult novels, is this years featured speaker at the “Imagined Ink” Awards Celebration and will also present a Teen Writing Workshop earlier in the day.
