What if the witch’s house in Hansel and Gretel was made of vegetables instead of candy? What if the Big Bad Wolf wasn’t so bad? What if your favorite fairy tales were different? Reimagine classic stories for CLiF’s “Fractured Fairy Tales” writing contest for kids!

This summer’s Collaborative Summer Library Program’s theme is Imagine Your Story: Fairy tales, myths, and fantasy. Libraries and summer learning programs across the country will be using this theme to inspire young imaginations. CLiF’s writing contest is one way to encourage the young writers in your life to get creative and keep up writing while out of school.

Come up with your own twists on your favorite stories. Open to kids ages 12 and under from New Hampshire and Vermont. The winner of each category (PreK-Kindergarten; Grades 1-2; Grades 3-4; Grades 5-6) will win a collection of new books!

Submit your stories to programs@clifonline.org by June 30, 2020.

Please include the author’s name, age, and mailing address (so we know where to send books to the winners).

We can’t wait to read your stories!
