Sonya Sones Writing Contest!

Author Sonya Sones is pretty awesome, and her book What My Girlfriend Doesn't Know just came out in paperback! That's good news, but even better is that Sonya's publisher is hosting a writing contest in which the winner gets a free six-week online writing class from Gotham Writers' Workshop! Plus their entry will be posted on Sonya's website. 10 Runners up get a subscription to Teen Ink magazine and an autographed copy of the book. How cool!

To enter, you must be between the ages of 13-18, and you need to read What My Girlfriend Doesn't Know, which is written as a series of poems (read these excerpts to get an idea of how good this book is). Then, you'll write a continuation of the story in 10 pages or less, following the style of the book, of course. (Budding poets--hello?! This is your lucky day!)

The contest is here
. Good luck!

Wow I wish they had something like that down here in California! I mean there are a lot of people down here and it would most definitely be a memorable day in a kodak moment type of history!
It really does look like a fun event and I wonder what other events like it they have planned! :)
With events like this Im sure with its positivity it will only enhance smiles all around the world!
