2017 Young Writers Contest
Get Published Win $50!

In past years, The Tarpeian Rock has sponsored writing contests for older kids and teens ages 12 through 18. The winners of these contests had their pieces published in The Tarpeian Rock and won $50 besides.

For this year's contest, we will return to a unique but successful approach that we used in the past. It's said that a picture is worth a thousand words. Below you will find several illustrations that we're hoping are worth about 2,500 words. 

To qualify for this year's contest, the entrant and his/her story must meet the following criteria: 
The editors of The Tarpeian Rock will choose one (1) winner. The winner will receive a $50 award and the story will be published in the 2017 edition of The Tarpeian Rock.

All selections will be final and not subject to appeal. Friends and family of Arx Publishing and its members are ineligible to participate.
The editors reserve the right not to choose a winner if too few entries are submitted or if the quality of said entries is not up to standards.

A special thank you to Hannah Baker, Anthony Schiavo III, Katharine Campbell and Helen Schiavo for providing the artwork for this year's contest. 
DEADLINE -- Extended!
Entries should be sent to the address at right no later than December 1, 2016 December 31, 2016
The winner will be notified on or before January 31, 2017.
