Did you know that there is a secret society of aliens living right underneath your feet? Or that the house down the street is actually home to a secret society of knights that slay real-life dragons? Don’t believe me? Well, we want to believe you!
The Revere Public Library is hosting a Creative Writing contest this summer to find the most interesting hidden secrets about Revere. Starting August 3rd, make sure to keep your eyes peeled for the strangest, most fantastical things that occur around us without us even knowing. You will have three weeks until August 24th, to discover the hidden histories and expose the amazing mysteries about Revere. In 2,500 words or less, let your imagination run free. Tell the tale of a local Revere location with a hidden history, too fantastic to believe.
Begin with the prompt: “I didn’t know that _______ existed at ________ until I found out for myself.” Think of a place you have always wanted to know more about, and how wild it would be if that place had a fantastical history.
This contest will be for young adults between the ages of 13-18 years old. Please email all responses to firstname.lastname@example.org. Prize to be determined. Winner will be announced on September 8th.
