Clermont Library to host short story contest through Nov. 30

Everyone has a story … unleash yours during the Short Story Contest hosted by the Clermont County Public Library Oct. 8 through Nov. 30. 

The contest is open to writers in two categories: Teens age 11 to 17 and adults age 18 and up. 

To submit your entry, go to by midnight Nov. 30. Include a title page with your name, age, category (teen or adult), address and phone number. 

The stories will be judged anonymously. All entries are final. Stories will not be returned and should be acceptable for general audiences.

One entry will be accepted per person. The original and unpublished stories must be between 1,500 and 2,000 words. 

Winners will be announced Jan. 19 and the stories will be published on the library’s website.

First-, second- and third-place winners will receive $150, $100 and $50 gift cards, respectively.
