Teenagers are an Alien Species – Free Writing Competition

Do you know any young writers (year 9 to 13 / between the ages of 12 and 18 years old) who would like to win personalized feedback from published authors on their work? Perhaps young artists or designers who would like to win design coaching and have their artwork featured as the cover for the upcoming Write Offline 2013 Anthology?

I’m really excited to have been invited by Lee Murray to judge the cover design part of Tauranga Writers’ 2013 NZ Secondary School annual writing competition and coach the winner toward perfecting the final cover.

The rules are as follows:

* Create an original piece of writing (short story, essay or poem) using the following sentence as the theme, title or as a line anywhere in the piece of writing: ‘Teenagers are an Alien Species’. Your piece of writing must be no more than 1500 words for prose and 300 words for poetry.

* Create an original piece of cover art using the following sentence as its theme: ‘Teenagers are an Alien Species’.

* Entry is Free and you may enter as many times as you like but all entries must be received by 12am (midnight) on Friday 28th June 2013.

If you want to find out more, check out the official website here and download the entry requirements. Make sure you submit it in the exact font, size etc that they’ve requested!

Good luck.
