Wattpad Is Running Writing Contest For Teens

Online publishing community Wattpad has teamed up with author Lisa McMann and Simon & Schuster’s online writing community PulseIt for a writing contest that will bring one teen writer to New York.

Entrants must write 1,000 words responding to McMann’s prompt: “I twisted my hair into a ponytail, tucking it under my cap and lowering the brim. Then I took a final look around the room full of strangers, wondering which of them would help me escape, and which would try to kill me.”

Writers must be Wattpad and PulseIt members, live in the U.S. or Canada and be between the ages of 14-18 to enter. Follow this link for more details.
