FBA CREATIVE WRITING FESTIVAL 2020

Grades 4th - 12th

Entries are due to Mrs. San Roman by 12/9/2020

They can be hand delivered or emailed to tsanroman@fbauc.com 

Content

Students have freedom in the choice of content. The work does not have to be spiritual in nature, but we encourage a spiritual application, if appropriate. Please avoid potentially offensive themes that include racial slurs, deal with the occult (witchcraft, ghosts, haunted houses, etc.), or have excessive fantasy, sexual innuendos, vulgar themes, excessive violence, and​​ bathroom humor. A student may,​​ however, choose one of these areas—ghosts, haunted houses, excessive fantasy, sexual innuendos, vulgar themes, or bathroom humor—and deal with it in a positive, biblical manner. Questionable material will be returned and will not be judged.
