    I hope I win.


    Short Story Consideration

    The opportunity to win a slot for your Short Story into a collection is what inspires Breakfield and Burkey to submit. Knowing we can be part of a movement to help improve literacy as well as be shared with libraries all over Texas. This has us putting our best foot forward and trying to be a part of something that helps our community and allows people to explore our writing style. Thanks

    A Great Marketing Tool for Authors

    Some writers need to start off small and a short story is a great way to do it. The success of this contest is shown by the number of entries they receive each year. In addition, for an established author, by having a story your story in a book that is given away to a thousand plus libraries, it is great exposure that draws new readers to them. A great way to get exposure and help a nonprofit organization that is about reading.
