2011 Writing Contest — Kansas Author’s Club

Posted on February 22, 2011


Since I live in Kansas, I can’t help but post the information for this contest AND it allows juvenile writers to enter. Although, the monetary compensation isn’t much, it would be a great benefit for your talented teens or someone who wants to get published.

To be eligible for this contest, you must live in Kansas or Missouri. Please see the details below.
