Young Adult Mystery Short Story Contest

on November 26, 2010

Do you think you can write a young adult mystery short story? (3,000-7,000 words)?

Here is a contest for you--Mystery Times Ten Contest

Mystery – Your choice be it murder, cozy, paranormal,
romance, soft-boiled, hard-boiled, police procedural, suspense,
thriller, or amateur detective. In a mystery, the main character
must track down the truth about an event, often a murder. If the
protagonist is in any danger, it usually becomes a problem only
as the detective/protagonist approaches the truth. That’s your
base, how it plays out is up to you! Please remember your
audience is 13 and up.

Submissions will be accepted from October 1, 2010 to January
31, 2011. Entries should be between 3,000-7,000 words in length.
