Short Story, Poetry, and Art Contest
18 and under

A platform for the expression of creativity for young writers and artists.


Our contest was created to give young writers, and artists an outlet to explore their creativity. The contest was designed to provide a creative outlet for young writers and artists by inspiring real creativity and exploration in various writings, and art for a chance to win cash, and prizes.


Think of fun, interesting, sad, and insightful short stories, poems, and art. That’s what we inspire and encourage our young creatives to contribute towards. We are creating a fun space that encourages youthful expressions through short stories, poetry, and art.
