Newly added to our Contests for Young Writers is the ambitious 2023 Quills and Keyboard contest for high school writers ages 14 and older. Contest organizer Nikhita Thakuria [pictured] recognized the many hurdles teen writers face, exacerbated by the pandemic and the rise of Chat GDP. Setting the standard of encouragement, Quills and Keyboard is open to sixteen different categories of writing with four winners selected in each category. And, eliminating barriers, there is no fee to participate in the contest. The deadline is May 20, 2023, so please help spread the word and encourage young writers in your life to submit their best work.
NewPages Contest for Young Writers and Publications for Young Writers are carefully curated, ad-free resources for young readers (K to college undergrad) to find great content as well as for young writers to find places to submit their work without being preyed upon. Please check out these wonderful resources and share them with young readers and writers in your life, parents, teachers, librarians – anyone who can help encourage the continuation of the arts for the next generation!
