Bookshop Santa Cruz established the Young Writers Contest in 2010 to
highlight talented young people in our community who enjoy writing and
storytelling. In this second annual contest, Bookshop Santa Cruz staff narrowed
down the entries to a set of finalists which were then judged by
children’s book author and Newbery Medalist Paul Fleischman. Bookshop
Santa Cruz is proud to showcase their work in this printed edition.
Young writers, ages 6 and up, can submit their work for our 2012 Young
Writers Contest beginning May 20, 2012.
