Two Teens’ Manuscripts Win Annual Fiction-Writing Contest
Alpharetta, GA -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/21/2018 -- Two teenagers are each one step closer to becoming published authors! BookLogix is pleased to announce that Jude Hill, 13, of Leadville, Colorado and Natalie Moss, 17, of Norcross, Georgia, have been selected as the winners of the 2017 BookLogix Young Writers Contest.
Jude and Natalie's manuscripts were selected as the best among all of the entries by a panel of judges. They have won full publishing of their manuscript by BookLogix and will work with BookLogix's team of publishing professionals as their books are published and released for sale.
Jude's manuscript, The Ghost of Puffin's Cove, is a fantasy story in which the ghost of a dead friend recruits a girl to help solve her murder. She credits her hometown for giving her material for the story, saying, "I live in a small, mountain town. Because a lot of the houses and buildings are over 100 years old, there are quite a few stories about ghosts living in them. A lot of my inspiration came from these stories."
In Natalie's winning manuscript, Into the Fire, a witch fights a battle against a king she is destined to overthrow, and discovers just how strong she really is in the process. Her reason for writing the novel is quite simple, "I wrote Into the Fire because I had an overactive imagination and too much time on my hands," jokes Natalie.
The Young Writers Contest seeks to encourage young writers to express themselves through their work and consider the possibilities of publishing their writing. Winners are selected based on originality, creativity, and skill. Two winners, one in the 10—13 and another in the 14—18 age range, each receive full publishing of their book.
The 2018 Young Writers Contest is open until December 31st. Visit BookLogix.com for more information on how to enter.
