In honor of National Novel Writing Month, the Warren Public Library is hosting a Teen Writing and Art Contest. Short fiction, poetry, essays, and visual art are all acceptable submissions.

All contestants must submit a cover sheet with their name, grade, and the title of their work. Winners will be notified in December for prizes. Teens can indicate if they would like their work to be included in a “zine” showcasing teen creativity.

For Grades 6-12. Submissions will be accepted November 1-30, 2021 at all Warren Library Branches
