Each year, we receive thousands of entries to our Create a Character Contest, in which we ask your students to come up with an imaginative and compelling character to star in a famous author’s original story, which we will publish at the end of the school year.

This year, we’re very excited to have the fantastic Elise Broach as our Create a Character Contest author! Elise will personally choose her favorite character from among the entries we receive and use that character as inspiration for a brand-new story for the May/June 2021 issue of Storyworks. We can’t wait to see what your students come up with!
