Get ready...The 4th Annual Darien Library Teen Writing Competition is about to begin!

Throughout the years we have met a lot of talented teens here at the Library and we know that many of you love to write. Now is your chance to share your writing and try for some great prizes. Not only is there a $100 for the winner in each age group and category, but this year we are offering a scholarship prize of $500 for one lucky winner. As if that isn't cool enough you will also have the opportunity to meet with published authors and have your work printed and read by a large audience. And can you imagine putting this on your college applications? 

We're so excited to read your work, whether it's poetry, fiction, or non-fiction. If you have any questions about the competition, contact Teen Librarian, Erica Gauquier at egauquier@darienlibrary.org or (203) 669-5225.
