Teen Poetry & Short Story Contest

Stuck inside with nowhere to go? Why not use that time to get creative and start writing?!

We are looking for teens ages 13-19 to submit original works of poetry or fiction to our Teen Poetry & Short Story Contest. We will be giving away some awesome prizes for first, second and third in each category. Plus, the winning writers will have their work shared publicly with the Waterloo Region community.

Teen Book Club

Teens ages 13 to 19 years old
Thursday, April 1 to Wednesday, June 30
Join the club at waterloo.readsquared.com

Your mission is easy, complete as many missions as possible and you could win. Our Teen Events Team has created a space where you can share reviews, recommendations (and rants!) about the books you read. Find book-minded others, complete challenges and discover your next great read. The best part is... no assigned reading. Just read whatever interests you and participate online!

Teen Events Team

Want to have a say in your library? Interested in helping to plan and run programs and events for other teens in your community? Are you creative, enjoy design or drawing? Are you a teen influencer who wants to share your love of reading with others? Or maybe you just really really love books? Well this is the team for you! The WPL Teen Events Team does all of these things and more.

If you are between the ages of 13-19 and are interested in joining the Team, please fill out the form below and our Team Leader will be in touch. 

We use Google Classroom for this group so please provide a PERSONAL e-mail address, not a school related address.
