BOOKWORM!

 

Calling all student writers!


We want to publish your student's work in a collection of stories with their schoolmates or in their own book!



SUBMIT A SHORT STORY FOR AN ANTHOLOGY OR A FULL BOOK


Short story submissions will be grouped based on grade, subject or style depending on the number and types of submissions received.

Short story submissions are open to all grades (K-6) and 4th - 6th graders may choose to write an individual book.

Upon publication, all books will be available in the library for check out by all students. Soft cover copies of individual books will be returned to their authors at the end of their final year at Montgomery while anthology collections will remain in the library for future classes to enjoy.

Additional soft and hard cover copies of both individual and anthology books will be available to order when your student submits their work.

Please sign up in Membership Toolkit by Wednesday, March 11th so we can send the appropriate materials to your student. Submissions must be returned to school by Wednesday, April 1st.

Please contact the Bookworm Committee with any questions:

NOT A WRITER?

NOT A PROBLEM! CHOOSE YOUR STYLE

We know that writing may not be every storyteller’s strong suit, so submissions are not limited to written stories! Stories can be fiction or non-fiction in any format that can be photocopied.​

Some ideas include:

  • Illustrations

  • Graphic novels

  • Handwritten pieces

  • Typed pieces

    • Students may type them or have your student verbally tell you a story and type it for them

  • Screenshots of an AAC device

  • Paper and photo collage

  • Original photography

    • Have your child take photos that tell a story

    • Take photos of your child acting out a story
