The National Writing Project in New Hampshire, in collaboration with the Scholastic Writing Contest, is pleased to offer New Hampshire students in grades 7-12 the opportunity to submit their work for publication and awards.  Student work will be accepted in the following categories: fiction, flash fiction, poetry, personal narratives, persuasive essays, humor, science fiction and fantasy.  Works are judged blindly against others by students in the same genre and grade range by  a panel of judges consisting of writers and writing teachers associated with the writing project.  Students can earn gold or silver keys, or have their works cited for honorable mention.  All works so honored will be published in Middle High School Voices, an anthology of student writing published annually.  Gold key winners will go on to have their work judged at the national level and be eligible for national awards.

To submit your work, please go to our submissions page and register.  You may register at any time after September 17th.  Follow the instructions on the site to submit your work, and go to our regional submission page.   The deadline for submitted work is January 15th, 2013.  You may mail in the submission forms after that date, but the works need to be uploaded to the site.   Teachers are encouraged to work with their classes to revise and prepare manuscripts for submission.   We look forward to reading your work.

All regional winners will be honored at an awards ceremony at Plymouth State University in May.
