Win With Words for Wee Ones

June 6, 2013

You can win with a few words for wee ones…the next Children’s Writer Kindergarten Story Contest gives you (and me) a chance to explore writing for little listeners.

Easy, you say?

Not so.

Just try to squeeze a beginning, middle, and end, with characters, relevance, interest, an appropriate vocabulary into 150 words. 

It’s like trying to keep a desperately fearful toad in your shirt pocket. Or trying to keep a wiggling caterpillar under a magnifying glass. Or squeezing yourself into a too-small hollow log searching for mysterious beetles. 

Which brings up the fact that you need to stuff a theme into this story too! EXPLORATION!  Take a kindergarten on an imagination expedition into reading and you’ve got yourself an entry. 
Visit the Children’s Writer contest site here: http://www.thechildrenswriter.com/af627/

(If you are a subscriber to Children’s Writer Magazine, your entry is free.  If not, there’s a small $15 fee to enter.)

You just might discover the distinction of being published in Children’s Writer (a magazine that goes to 1300 editors across the world), as well as win $500.  Now that could fund some serious exploring.
