San Jose Public Library Storytelling Contest Puts Local Voices Front and Center!

This winter, to highlight local voices and curate local content specially made for their Short Story Dispensers, the San Jose Public Library organised a pretty special short fiction and comic contest. Open to authors of all ages (the youngest was just 3, the oldest 77), this project was a blooming success: between the short story contest and the comic making contest, almost 150 works were submitted!
Let’s hope this will be the first of many successful contests for the San Jose Public Library!

We drove south on York Road, passing the large brick house that always stole my attention. I peered past my mother’s arms and the steering wheel, to take another long, unblinking look. The... [+]
