Judging the California Writers Club Young Writers Contest

As one of the judges of the Young Writers Contest, I can tell you it’s an honor to read the manuscripts which arrive from middle school students all over Contra Costa County.  We are in the process of judging now. 

The quality is great, but some of the students  forgot to follow the guidelines.   One particular writer was sooooo good, but the judges had to disqualify her.   I know what a fantastic writer she is, so this saddened me.   Fortunately for her, she has another year to qualify.

If you are a student who will enter next year, remember to triple-check the rules.  Mark them off, one by one, before you place TWO copies of your manuscript in the envelope.   

 As soon as the new chair people call the winners, I will post their names and schools on this blog.
