2017-18 NCRA Young Authors’ Project

“2018 Young Authors Theme: Show Your Strength”

Young Authors are encouraged to write about their personal experiences with perseverance; how they have overcome obstacles; how they found strength in a time of weakness; and/or what inspired them to rise above a particular challenge.  Authors may write prose or poetry, fiction or non­fiction. All entries must be submitted electronically via the NCRA Google Folder. There will also be a Cover Design contest for anyone interested in creating a cover design for the publication. Please contact your locally affiliated NCRA council Young Authors Chair or NCRA President, Lauren Johnson ( for more information.
