Spoonful of Stories Contest

Filed under: Uncategorized — ccassello @ 6:55 am

I just submitted one of my story poems to the Cheerios “Spoonful of Stories” contest but I will very surprised if I come anywhere near winning.  The stories are supposed to be for kids 3 to 8 and I think mine would be too mature for the youngest of that age group, even though it is a fairy tale story.  Come to think of it, I’m not sure an 8-year-old would even appreciate it.  It is also in rhyme, which I think meets the qualification of being readable, but not many publishers want that now.  The story I wanted to submit is too long.  They want no more than 500 words and mine is over 700.  I was cutting it down, but I don’t know if I can cut that much of it.  I will see if they let a person enter more than once and if they do, I will either keep working on that one or write a new story.  I just remembered another fun one I have that might work, but I don’t think I have it on the computer now, that’s why I was not thinking about it.

    Great job on entering! I forgot all about this contest, and will definitely get moving towards submitting. I didn’t enter last year because I was living in Japan, but I will move to America in September.

    Good luck with the contest!!!
