The Raleigh Fine Arts Society Literary Contest is a short story writing contest for Wake County high school students in grades 10, 11 and 12.
Students may submit original short stories, with a maximum of 5,000 words, electronically through this website during the application call period. Each entry must be approved by the student’s English teacher using the link provided by Submittable, the software program Raleigh Fine Arts uses for the submission and judging processes.
The student winners, their English teachers, parents and principals are invited to the Awards Ceremony. The ceremony is preceded by a Writers' Workshop for the winners, at which the final judges evaluate the award-winning stories.
