La Plume Young Writers Contest now open

The 2013 La Plume Young Writers Contest is now accepting applications.  It's the third year for the event here in Coconut Grove. The goal is to encourage appreciation of writing and reading.

La Plume offers students the opportunity to express themselves through a short story based on themes relevant to their grade level. A panel of professional journalists, actors, writers and educators evaluate all submissions. Massimo Tarridas, left, was a Grand Prize winner last year.


A 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winner for each level will be selected as well as a Grand Prize per level. Prizes will be awarded to all winners and the Grand Prizes will have their manuscript published. A celebration of all the young authors will include a book signing of the published manuscripts.

Cash prizes and numerous awards will be given to all winners, sponsored by The Bookstore in the Grove, MCA academy and other patrons.

Registration is now open until May 31, 2013. There is a $10 fee to enter. Students will have the summer to write their stories, which must be submitted by August 31, 2013. Awards are presented in November.

For more information visit www.laplumecontest.com or call: 305-442-2283.

This is the stuff that makes the Grove what it always has been...a hotbed for the arts and a great environment for families to raise their kids. You hear so much crap about the future of the Grove being negative. However, we often forget that it's the eclectic individuals and families that live here that make this place great. Not all success is measured in cash drawer tallies. Kudos to the staff over at MCA and The Bookstore in the Grove for keeping this awesome contest up. Although this contest is meant to push competitive creativity amongst the youth, its the adults that should take notice that there are locals who still believe.
