Pikes Peak Library District is excited to announce the call for submissions for All Pikes Peak Writes! All Pikes Peak Writes is PPLD’s annual fiction writing contest for ages 12+ and seeks to highlight writers in our community through one contest. This year’s contest will have three categories for Middle School and High School (ages 12-18), Young Adult (ages 19-24), and Adult (ages 25+). Please see the guidelines, rules for entry, and submission form for each category below.
Submissions will be accepted May 15, 2022, through 9 p.m. on July 15, 2022.
All Pikes Peak Writes is open to El Paso County residents ages 12+
Entries will be judged on quality of writing, use of language, plot development and resolution, believable characters, and correct punctuation, grammar, and spelling.
Prizes will be awarded for first, second, and third place entries in each category. We will notify participants in mid-August if they have won an award. All winners will be announced on ppld.org and invited to have their story published in an anthology of winning entries.
