Bookshop Santa Cruz Short Story Contest
Bookshop Santa Cruz sponsors an annual short story contest to showcase local talent. We do not look for any particular theme or style—just great writing. The winning story is published in our newsletter, Readers, with a circulation of more than 12,000 readers. First, second, and third place stories are posted on our website. In addition, the top three winning authors are invited to read their stories on Bruce Bratton's University Grapevine radio program (Tuesdays 7:30–8:30pm, KZSC 88.1 FM.)
Bookshop Santa Cruz Young Writers Contest
Bookshop Santa Cruz celebrates the talents of young writers in our community with a contest designed for ages 6 and up! First, second, and third place winners from each age group receive Bookshop Santa Cruz gift certificates. Plus, the winning entries are published together in a collection each November.
