Central’s Learning Commons, in cooperation with the Icarian literary magazine and Writer’s Block club announced a new contest called “What’s Your Story?” The contest is open to both students and staff and runs through Nov. 10.

According to teacher-librarian John Hayward, the intent of the contest is to “explore the power of story.”

To help students get started with entry ideas, the Learning Commons is providing a handout with prompts for fiction, nonfiction and art entry possibilities. Many of the prompts feature ideas inspired by the Halloween season, such as the suggestion of writing a piece from the point of view of someone who is dead who can only watch survivors, or a focus on “creepy” visuals for an art or photography submission. Contestants are encouraged, however, to explore original ideas based on the “what’s your story?” theme as well.

Submissions can be turned in digitally to the Icarian’s email address ([email protected]) or by physically dropping off your entry in the submission box in the Learning Commons

For more information, visit the Learning Commons to browse a display of books, resources and ideas or to speak with a librarian about the contest.
