2016 Flash (Non-) Fiction Contest

For Ages 12 - Adult

The deadline for entering our Flash (Non-) Fiction contest has passed.

Like Mattie Ross, sometimes it takes courage to be who you are and make choices that are right for you. We posed the challenge for this year's contest: Tell us in 250 words or less about a choice you made that took "true grit."

We will notify the winners by email or phone by March 1, 2016.

  • Winners of the Flash (Non-) Fiction contest are invited to read their works at the monthly local writers series on Thursday, April 28, 7:30-9 p.m. at BookMarx Book Store, 325 E. Walnut St.
  • Winning stories will be published on thelibrary.org/bigread. Other select entries will be posted on facebook.com/thelibrary.org in April during the Big Read.
  • Winners will receive a gift basket including a copy of "True Grit."
