Writes of Spring: Voice Your Choice


Writes of Spring is a unique writing contest designed to support literacy and promote creative expression. Each year we accept submissions from Kindergarten through 12th grade students, and the top entries are compiled to create an original play using the students’ words and ideas. The resulting script is produced by The REP and UCF graduate students, and presented in a stage production at The REP. The winning writers will be honored and recognized at the performance and post-show celebration.

In its 14th year, the participants will be invited to explore the topic of freedom of speech. Students are invited to creatively respond to the prompt through either a one-page short story, essay, or poem.

Prompt: How do you use your freedom of speech?

All entries must be submitted or postmarked by October 21, 2016.

  • Mailed entries must include the student’s full name along with the parent/ guardian/teacher’s name, email, and phone number at the top of the entry.
  • If you are submitting online, please exclude all personal information as this information is provided in the online submission form.
