Use your imagination this summer. Tell us your tale!

Respond to our writing prompts and you will have a chance for your writing to be shared with the audiences of our Facebook Live programs!

Read our official rules here.

Stories cannot be longer than 450 words (not including the title) and must be original by the author. They will be judged in two categories, grades 2-3 and grades 4-6, on creativity, relevance, and coherence. Each week, two stories in each category will be selected to be read on Facebook Live on Thursdays at 5pm beginning July 9.

Week 1 (6/24) Prompts:

Option 1:
Choose your favorite fairy tale and tell us what happens after “Happily Ever After.”

Option 2:
You wake up with a new superpower or ability. What is it and how do you use it – for good or for mischief?
