2017 High School Writers Competition

Are you a high school aged writer, or do you know someone who is? Write On The River is thrilled to announce the opening of the 6th Annual High School Writers Competition!

This annual short fiction contest is open to any high school student (grades 9-12) in North Central Washington (including Running Start students). The winning entry earns a prize of $100, generously donated by bestselling author (and former Write On The River keynote speaker) Chelsea Cain. Our panel of judges also chooses two Honorable Mentions, and ALL students who submit entries get to attend our May conference free of charge!
