Lighthouse Writers Workshop is presenting a writing contest for teens as part of the One Book, One Denver celebrations. Details below are from the Arts & Venues Denver website:

A story, real or imagined, of a difficult journey. The journey can be literal/geographical, such as hiking the Colorado Trail, or it can be more of a metaphorical journey, such as working hard to achieve a lifelong dream. Mark your submission as fiction, nonfiction or poetry. Entries should be no more than 750 words in length, typed in 12-point font and double-spaced. Each will be judged on the quality of the writing, originality and subject matter.
