The Friends of the Buda Library and The Buda Public Library are excited to once again present an exceptional literary competition for non-professional writers aged 17 and up.

Get creative and write a short story, no longer than 4,000 words, about anything you’d like! Entries will be judged by local writers, community leaders, and librarians based on the quality of the writing, creativity, originality, and story.

Fame and riches! Our top three writers will have their stories published on our website and get a cool cash payout!

First: $200

Second: $100

Third: $50

The entry fee is only $20 and all proceeds benefit programs and services at the Buda Public Library.
