Timeless Tales Writing Contest

Arts Society King in partnership with the King Heritage & Cultural Centre Presents

Timeless Tales Writing Contest

April 8 – May 31, 2021

Behind every old photo there is a wonderful mystery. Who were these people? What happened next? And why? Seven intriguing images from King’s past are waiting for York Region writers of all ages to tell it like it wasn’t. Pick one, and let your imagination go wild. The best of the best in each of 4 age categories, from children to adults, will be awarded a $50 Indigo gift card, plus a heritage book, and publication in local print and social media. So pull out your best verbs. Sprinkle us with a few delicious adjectives. Move us. Touch us. Make us laugh or cry or wonder what on earth you were thinking. Submission deadline: May 31, 2021. For the complete rules and the entry form to the TIMELESS TALES Writing Contest, please see below. Brought to you by ASK in partnership with The King Heritage & Cultural Centre.
