ASPIRING AUTHOR SHOWCASE
2020-2021 INFORMATION WILL BE RELEASED IN NOVEMBER 2020
ABOUT THE ASPIRING AUTHOR SHOWCASE
The Aspiring Author Showcase is an individual competition in which students develop short stories related to one of the topics for the year. The story (1500 words or less) is set at least 20 years in the future and is an imagined, but logical, outcome of actions or events taking place in the world.
Why Scenario Writing? To prepare students for the challenges of the 21st century, It teaches students to think critically, creatively, and futuristically. Scenario Writing strives to help students enlarge, enrich, and make more accurate their images of the future, while honing their creative writing skills. Scenario Writing personalizes the ever-growing perspective a student has on the future. In addition, participation provides opportunities for students to meet and exceed educational standards as they refine their writing skills.
