Short Story Contest

Everyone has a story … unleash yours during the Short Story Contest hosted by the Clermont County Public Library Nov. 1 through Nov. 30.

The contest is open to writers in two categories: Teens, age 11 to 17, and adults, age 18 and up.

To submit your entry, go to by midnight Nov. 30.

The stories will be judged anonymously. All entries are final. Stories should be acceptable for general audiences. One entry will be accepted per person. The original and unpublished stories must be between 1,500 and 2,000 words.

Winners will be announced Feb. 18 and the stories will be published on the library’s website blog. First-, second- and third-place winners will receive $150, $100 and $50 gift cards, respectively.
