announcing Utah Children's Writers Very FIRST Writing Contest

(drum roll, please) I'm thrilled to announce our very first writing contest for the blog!

For the first three weeks of March, this blog will host its very first writing contest! All entries will be posted to the blog and voted on by blog readers. The winner gets a $10 gift card to Barnes & Noble or Amazon and their winning entry posted here and on the UT Children's Writers email group (hopefully more prizes will be added throughout the month!). 

Here are the requirements:

  -write a short story or poem, any age, any genre
  -use the phrase "he had it coming to him" in the writing (you can change it to she/her)
  -post your writing as a comment to this or the previous blog post
  -check back to read others' entries
  -vote for your favorite story

All comments must be submitted by 11:59 pm on Saturday March 26th. Voting will take place the last week of March. Winner(s) will be announced on April 1st.
