Go for the moon. If you don't get it, you'll still be headed for a star.

Calling All Authors:

Do you remember your first dream?

Epic Authors presents the 2010 New Voices Writing Competition for young writers. This free annual contest provides the opportunity for budding authors to submit and be judged, and to win and be published.

“Viewpoints are rapidly changing in the publishing industry and our school systems regarding e-publishing. EPIC’s members have been on the forefront of the literacy fight, speaking at schools and conferences, encouraging evocative and expressive writing from young writers.”
--New Voices Brochure

The New Voices competition takes short stories, essays, and poetry submissions from youth ages 11 to 18 (Middle School and High School). Judges are educational or publishing professionals. Our winners are chosen from each age group and category, and are published in an anthology. Prizes vary and range from an e-reader to gift certificates (and more).

New Voices is a wonderful chance to encourage our youth to develop their talents and pursue their goals. Spread the word about New Voices and foster a child’s dream.

  1. I love contests that encourage the younger generation to write.

  2. If I went for the moon, I would get the bloody moon. No point going otherwise

  3. I wish there were contests like this when I was growing up. I would have definitely entered. :)

  4. What a fab contest. I wish I'd entered more when I was younger. (I'd like to enter more now, too.)
