Telling Room Writing Contest

The Telling Room’s annual creative Writing Contest allows youth from all over Maine, ages 6-18, to show off their writing chops! This statewide contest runs from mid-October through November each year. A panel of professional writers and youth selects one grand prize winner, and finalists are considered for publication in The Telling Room’s annual anthology. Submissions to the Writing Contest are now closed. The Writing Contest will reopen in October of 2022.
