Join Wordcrafters in Eugene to celebrate local young writers.
Join Wordcrafters in Eugene to celebrate the winners of this year's Fiction Fantastic Contest in person at the Downtown Eugene Public Library or live online.
Emceed by local spoken word artist Jorah LaFleur, this event will feature a keynote titled “Stories are Magic" by celebrity judge and Oregon author Rosiee Thor.
Each year, the literary nonprofit Wordcrafters in Eugene hosts Fiction Fantastic, a short story contest for young writers in Lane County. This year, over 140 stories were submitted. These stories are read by local writers, teachers, and community members, then passed on to a celebrity author, and the winning stories are published in the Fiction Fantastic anthology.
This event is a celebration of Wordcrafters' young writers and community programs. In addition to the Fiction Fantastic Contest, Wordcrafters has a thriving Writers in the Schools program that works with Kalapuya High School, Elmira High School, and the John Serbu Youth in Detention program.
