South-Central Creative Writing Festival

Creative Writing Festivals provide students the opportunity to develop and express their creative writing abilities and skills. Entries with a superior ranking are submitted to the regional creative writing festival. Entries with a superior ranking at the regional level are included in a published booklet.

For more information see Creative Writing Festival in the South-Central Student Activities Participation Guide.

To Get Started

Register your school for any of these events by completing the South-Central Student Activities Registration form. 

Once processed, the password for the handbooks is included in the confirmation notice emailed immediately to the school coordinator. For a complete listing of resources available (including a Coordinator Handbook) see "Resources" below. These files help schools plan and coordinate the event at their own school as well as prepare for and attend the district level event. Still have Questions? E-mail South-Central Student Activities Office.

This page is "under construction" until mid-August while the 2018-2019 handbooks and resources are uploaded and links created. The links will turn blue when the new material is ready.
