Write Out of This World
Sci-Fi and Fantasy Short Story Contest
Students in 3rd–12th grades are invited to express their creativity through EMP’s fourth annual Write Out of This World: Sci-Fi and Fantasy Short Story Contest.
Submissions are judged by a panel of experts including EMP Museum curators, professional writers, and Seattle community leaders. Student winners for first, second, and third place will be awarded by grade level in the following categories: 3rd–5th, 6th–8th, and 9th–12th.
Contest winners will be invited to participate in workshops with Jack Straw Productions’ experienced team of arts professionals. Winners will receive workshops on writing, editing, and vocal coaching, and will take part in a recording session to produce an audio version of their winning entry. Winners will read excerpts from their stories in EMP’s Sky Church during an awards ceremony held in May.
The submission deadline has passed. Winners will be announced in March. Questions? Contact Education@EMPmuseum.org.
Write Out of This World is presented in partnership with Jack Straw Productions.
