The 2020 It's All Write contest has now closed.
The Ann Arbor District Library is excited to host its 29th annual “It’s All Write!” Teen Writing Contest in Spring 2021! Young Adult authors take part as judges each year, who then read and select the winning stories. Stories are judged in three different categories: Grades 6-8, Grades 9 & 10, and Grades 11 & 12. The top three writers in each age group receive fabulous prizes. This is an ever-growing, international contest.
Kids in grades 3-5 can also enter AADL's WriteOn! short story writing contest, which will take place in January and February of 2021.
