What’s outside your window? The great F. Scott Fitzgerald once opined: “Life is much more successfully looked at through a single window.” For the next few weeks, we want you all to show us your corner of the world –– whether fact, fiction, or somewhere in between. Be creative, be thoughtful, be yourself.
All work will be published on our site, decameronproject.org. If you choose to share your story with a photo of yourself and a short biography, we’ll add you to our wall of young storytellers and broadcast your story on our social media platforms. And if you write a truly great story, the luminary Jason Reynolds will read it aloud.
*UPDATE: Stories submitted are now being judged. We will inform each candidate of our decision –– published, shortlisted, finalist, or winner –– by email. Thank you for submitting!*
All submissions will be reviewed by The Decameron Project’s dedicated team. Shortlisted submissions will then be judged by a panel of esteemed teachers, authors, and professors working with WriteOn. Bestselling author Jason Reynolds, with their recommendation, will then make the final selection of winners and honorable mentions.
