Write On! Tween Contest

Do you have a story to tell? Each year Burlington Public Library hosts Write On, a short story writing contest just for Tweens. It's a great way to practice your writing skills and flex your storytelling muscles. The best part? Your story will be read by a well-known author from our community! The contest runs annually from June 1 to July 31, with an awards ceremony and writing workshop in the Fall to recognize all our participants.

To enter the contest, you must:
·         be a resident of Burlington or attend a school in Burlington
·         be in grade 4, 5, or 6 in the 2018-2019 school year

For Teachers

Do you teach Grade 4, 5 or 6 in Burlington? Write On is a chance for students to have their work read by well-known local children’s authors, like Jennifer Maruno and Sylvia McNicoll! If you’d like more information about how you can incorporate this opportunity into your Spring 2019 curriculum, please contact:
