Library Short Story Contest Returns!
We are excited to announced the return of our annual short story contest in celebration of National Short Story Month.
The “73 Words in the 732” contest seeks original short stories that contain seventy-three words or fewer from adults ages 18 and older. Stories can be on any theme or topic, and a panel of library staff will select the best short stories, which will appear on the library’s website.
“This annual program brings out such creativity in our community,” says Melissa Hozik, Adult Programming Librarian. “As Shakespeare wrote, ‘Brevity is the soul of wit,’ and this writing challenge of challenge of 73 words is the ultimate challenge to convey a moment in a short amount of space.”
Adults age 18 and older are welcome to participate and East Brunswick residency is not required. Contributors must submit their stories online through the library’s website at www.ebpl.org by May 26.
