Deadline alert! Short story contest with Scope magazine and Lisa Yee

Help us spread the word! Scope, Scholastic’s award-winning print and digital Language Arts resource for middle school classrooms, has teamed up with beloved author Lisa Yee for an exciting new student fiction contest.

Here’s the scoop: Lisa Yee has written three first lines to stories that don’t exist. Students pick their favorite line and use it to write a short story of their own. The winning student will get $100 and his or her teacher will get a free year’s subscription to Scope PLUS a class set of Lisa Yee’s wonderful novel Warp Speed.

“This is such a fantastic opportunity for students,” says Scope Executive Editor Kristin Lewis. “They get to be creative, connect with a famous author, and be recognized for their work.”

The deadline for entries is March 10, 2017.

Be sure to check out the video below, in which Lisa Yee shares some wonderful writing advice.
