Tell Us A Story – Creative Writing Contest

Calling all creative writers! This spring we are celebrating stories and are asking you to tell us a story by submitting an entry to our writing contest.

Tell Us A Story is for adults 18 years and older with three categories:

  • poetry/song writing
  • essay/personal memoir
  • short story

Tell Us A Story is open to all adults 18 and over.

Winners will be featured on our library’s website during the month of March and will receive an Arlington Public Library Dream t-shirt! The Arlington Public Library reserves the right to publish winning entries on our website, but authors retain all other rights to their stories.

Submissions should be typed, double spaced with no less that a 12 point font. Short stories may be a maximum of five pages. There are no minimum length requirements. Participants may only submit one entry per category. Please submit in a PDF, DOC or DOCX format.

Submissions closed on Friday, February 24. We’ll announce the winners in March, so keep an eye out!
