May is Short Story Month and the Oshkosh Public Library is celebrating by challenging any 6th-12th grader to write a story with just six words! Legend says Ernest Hemingway won a contest with this six-word story: "For sale: baby shoes, never worn."
Think you can do better? Now is your chance! Teens may submit one original six-word story.
- The contest is open May 1 through May 31, 2019.
- Winners will be announced the first week of June.
- Prizes will be awarded to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place writers.
Need some ideas or inspiration? Check the library's Facebook page beginning May 1 for weekly writing prompts. (Contest submissions are not required to follow these prompts; they are being provided to help develop ideas and stories.)
