Bookshop Santa Cruz celebrates the talents of young writers in our community with an annual contest designed for writers ages 6–17.

Entries may be on any subject and in any genre—including fiction, poetry, nonfiction, biography, autobiography, humor, mystery, science fiction or fantasy. Word count limit is 2,100. Each entry must be an original work, submitted in the appropriate age group: 6–9, 10–13, and 14–17. First, second, and third place winners from each age group receive Bookshop Santa Cruz gift certificates. Plus, the winning entries are published together in a collection each November.

Entries are now open for our 2020 Young Writers Contest. Deadline for submissions is Sunday, September 20th. Pick up an entry form in the store, or download one here.
