Writing Contest Returns to Flash Fiction

Participation in the Writing Contests over the past several years has far exceeded expectations; we are thrilled that so many students and Advisors are submitting their work. This year, we return to Flash Fiction as the genre. Writing submissions will be welcomed three times over the course of the year, starting with “six-word stories” this fall from October 17 through November 21, 2022.

Later in the year, longer submissions of 100 and 250 words will be accepted covering themes yet to be determined. As in the past, each Writing Contest will be evaluated by members of the Advisory Council and the best of those entries will be published on NEHS Museletter and shared across the NEHS social network; at the end of the school year, each “finalist” group will be re-evaluated to select the top writers of the year. Those individuals will receive gift cards.
