Barnes and Noble has introduced a National Children’s Short Story Contest for kids ages 6-12. Fifteen select entries will be published in a real book sold exclusively at Barnes and Noble this winter holiday season. Entries should be 300-800 words or 4 pages of a black & white graphic story. Submit you entry here! The contest runs from April 27 to May 29, so there is plenty of time. Good luck, young writers of Algonquin & Lake in the Hills!
