Readability Announces Aspiring Writers Scholarship
Reading provides an escape to new worlds, friends, and adventures. A love of reading can help plant the seeds of inspiration for young readers to grow into writers who create their own stories and books.
To celebrate these aspiring writers, Readability is sponsoring the ’Readability Aspiring Writers’ Scholarship competition, which will reward one aspiring writer with a $1,000 scholarship and the opportunity to have a story published on the Readability app.
The competition will end on June 15, 2021, and is open to all students enrolled at an accredited college or university; applicants should have a 3.0 GPA or higher. Interested applicants should submit an original children’s story (fiction, nonfiction, or poetry) with a maximum length of 750 words.
Applicants also should include a short description of their story and explain why they hope to be selected for the scholarship; the background submission should be no longer than 100 words.
The winning writer will receive a $1,000 scholarship and have their story illustrated and published on the Readability app. Readability also will feature the winner on marketing materials and on the Readability website and social media channels. Only one winner will be selected.
All submissions from the competition will be the intellectual property of Readability. Applicants relinquish all copyrights to any story submitted through the competition. However, writers will be given credit if their story is selected for publication in the Readability app.
