Calling All Writers

You could win $500 in books, or a DJ for your school's prom! Want to know how?

Baker & Taylor, our book distributor, has just announced a fanfiction contest based on Laurie Halse Anderson's new book Prom. To enter you need to write a 1,500 word (or less) short story that is a prequel, sequel or alternate ending to Prom. A panel of judges, including Laurie Halse Anderson herself, will select the winners.

Grand Prize (1): $500 worth of books, or $500 toward a DJ at your school's prom, and your story showcased on Plus, a visit from Laurie Halse Anderson to your school/library in 2006. And $500 in books for your school/library. Pretty cool, huh?

First Prize (2): Your story highlighted on and a complete, signed set of Laurie Halse Anderson's books.

The contest is for writers ages 12-18 and is open until Dec. 31, 2005. Go to Baker & Taylor's site for all the official stuff.

So, go out and read Prom and then get writing!
