The Best of Middle Grade March 2012

Today marks the final day in our Middle Grade March feature — and so, we take a look back at this month’s hightlights!

Middle Grade Writing Contest

We’ve put together some really awesome prize packs featuring middle grade lit for this month’s writing contest. And we gave you two options:

OPTION A: Try your hand at writing middle grade. Write a short story or part of a novel, and submit a 250-500 word excerpt. Remember, Middle Grade fiction is generally targeted towards readers ages 8-12, so consider your audience when writing.

OPTION B: If you don’t feel up to creative writing, then tell us in 150-300 words about your favorite middle grade book or series from your childhood. What still stands out to you now? What books do you remember adoring when you were 8-12?

See complete rules & details here! The contest ends tomorrow, March 31st, at midnight (PT).
