Tri-Valley Writers (a branch of the non-profit California Writers Club) has launched the sixth annual High School Writing Contest, "My Story, My Vision." The contest is open to all students in grades 9-12 who attend school in Livermore, Dublin, Pleasanton, San Ramon or Danville. Submissions of poems, short stories or non-fiction essays will be accepted through April 9.
The California Writers Club (CWC) aims to mentor new writers and provide literary support for writers and the writing community through education and leadership. Students who enter the high school contest will receive feedback from CWC judges and are invited to attend the award ceremony on May 21. The top three winners in each category will also receive cash awards.
All students who enter will receive a valuable writing experience, whether they win an award or not. The contest has been well received by students in the past, and the CWC is hoping to make this year's contest the most successful one yet. Information and entry instructions are available at their website.
