Open Door Publishing knows that everyone has a story. We believe in nurturing the imagination of children of all ages and making everyone’s story heard. We strongly encourage writing for all school age children (prekindergarten through high school). Don’t worry if you are too young to write, because we know you are never too young to imagine. By asking for help from a parent, teacher, or friend, you can enter our contests.

Every month throughout the year we will have contests with a specific theme for each age group: PreK – 3rd grade, 4th – 6th grade, 7th – 9th grade, and 10th – 12th grade. We will pick one winner and two runners up in each group. We will proudly share each story on our website. Additionally, the winner of each group will be awarded in a medium yet to be determined.

Once you subscribe to our email list (found under the About Us door then click on follow us), you will be entitled to enter our contests. We look forward to your stories and supporting your writing talents. Whether you are in kindergarten or high school or anywhere in between, we’d love to hear your story and to share it with others.

Children less than 18 years of age must include a signed consent with submission.
