YANovCon Teen Short Story Contest (ends 1/17/17)
Enter our Teen Short Story Contest for YANovCon (Young Adult Novelist Convention, 1/28/17 at Millbrae Library) and you could win a one-on-one lunch and feedback with a published YA author. This year we're asking you to create a short story that deals with "mental health awareness."

Your short story should help readers empathize with a character who has a mental illness. Consider focusing and researching about one mental illness. Stories can be realistic fiction, sci-fi, fantasy, mystery, dystopian, or whatever you come up with. This contest is only open to teens in 6-12th grades. If you are under 13, please ask an adult to fill in this form for you.

Short Story Guidelines:
- Submit your own original work
- 500 words or less
- One story per person
- All submissions are due by January 17th

*By entering your story, you give us permission to display or publish your story online, in print publications or in the library.*

Winners will be announced at YANovCon on Saturday, January 28, 2017 and you will have a chance to read your story at the event. Ask for an information pamphlet at your local library for more details on the prize package.
