Writing contest: as a villain

Grade 5 to 8 students are invited to a writing contest hosted by World Literacy Canada in “looking at myself through the eyes of another.”

Entries will be orginal stories that describes what happens after the following prompt in 400 words or less:

People often say that “every person is the hero of their own story.” What they don’t tell you is that sometimes you are the villain in someone else’s story. This is the story of the day I learned that lesson the hard way.

Submission deadline is Apr. 15, and contest details can be found on www.worldlit.ca/write2016.
