7th Annual Young Writers Contest

Presented by Jack London Park Partners at Jack London State Historic Park

Deadline for Submissions:  March 31

Jack London Park Partners presents the 7th Annual Young Writer's Contest

Time to get creative and write your fictional short story for this year’s contest!

For 2022 we are choosing a positive focus and envisioning brighter days ahead for everyone. To support this, the theme of the contest is “Building Brighter Communities.”

Famous author and adventurer Jack London decided to try his hand at farming and purchased rural land on Sonoma Mountain.

But having a quiet farm up a mountain slope wasn’t enough for him, he needed it to be a place of progressive change where he could model “green” farming techniques and create his version of a cooperative community where all residents would have fair working conditions and a great quality of life. This was his “Ranch of Good Intentions.”

Your challenge is to write a fictional story where your character(s) create and dwell in a community of their own invention that is unique, different, emerging, or overcomes something challenging.

Be creative in describing how your community works while still telling us an entertaining story.

We want to see what a “brighter community” looks like through your eyes!
