3rd Annual Young Writers Contest

Celebrate Nature

From sled dogs in the mountains to stormy villains on the high seas, one of Jack London’s greatest inspirations was the natural world itself. His descriptive writing could make nature feel like the main character of any story.

WRITING PROMPT: Create an interesting fiction story around a particular environment or natural event, like a winter storm, summer drought, or even meteorites and solar flares. The sky is the limit! How does the event or environment influence, inspire, or even challenge your character(s)? Use your own relationship with nature as your inspiration! Deadline for entries is February 28th.
