Announcing 2nd Annual Nightlight Reading Short Story Contest

Nightlight Reading is requesting submissions for our 2nd Annual Nightlight Reading Short Story Contest.  This contest is geared to encouraging professional and amateur writers to write stories for at-risk boys in the 10- to 12-year-old age group who often stop reading for pleasure because of a lack of engaging literature for their age group.  Nightlight Reading’s goal is to fund and promote literature that appeals to boys and keeps them engaged and reading.

  • The 2nd Annual CONTEST THEME is MYSTERY
  • The written piece should be considered a SHORT STORY
  • MAXIMUM COUNT of 5,000 WORDS
  • Written for 10- to 12-year-old boys
