Announcing Susanna Hill's first Valentiny Writing Contest!
The Rules: since writing for children is all about “big emotion for little people” (I forget who said that, but someone did so I put it in quotes!) and Valentines Day is all about emotion, write a Valentines story in which someone is grumpy. It should be appropriate for children ages 12 and under in a maximum 214 words (get it? 2/14 for Valentines Day)! Your story can be poetry or prose, sweet, funny, surprising or anything in between, but it will only count for the contest if it includes someone grumpy (can be the main character but doesn’t have to be) and is 214 words max. You can go under the word count but not over! Title is not included in the word count. No illustration notes please!
