Penguin Random House Creative Writing Awards: Creative Writing Awards Program Shout Out Video #6

HUGE thank you to @Sara Naeem alunmni from Susan E. Wagner High school in Staten Island who was one of our 2015 Best of Borough Awards for the Memoir category.

Sara is currently going into her Senior year at Hunter College as a Human Biology major/sociology minor and shared that although she is in the STEM field, "the Arts (especially English/writing) has always stayed with me throughout my undergraduate career. It’ll stay with me for the rest of my life, and it’s all because of the support and encouragement that this Penguin Random House program gave to me in high school."

Our 1st Place 2017 Personal Memoir winner was Christy Deng from Edward R. Murrow High School. 'The Door' tells the heart-wrenching story of a sexual assault of a young high school girl. Written in second person point of view, we follow the nameless main character as she attempts to navigate life after the horrific event.

The great thing about memoirs is that you can turn any event that has already happened to you into a piece of writing. There is only one of YOU in the entire world and so only YOU can tell YOUR story.

Complete your application TODAY. Go to foundation.penguinrandomhouse.com/creativewriting. Deadline is March 15th!!

**THE DEADLINE HAS BEEN EXTENDED TO MARCH 15th!**

Our 2017 Fiction and Drama winner was Sophia Zhao from Bronx High School of Science.

Through the usage of compelling imagery, character development, and first-person point of view, we come to see how Drew makes peace with Charlie's passing.

Now it's YOUR turn. That story that you have in your head or that you've been writing in English class can be the next winning piece. If you have not done so, start your application TODAY. Go to foundation.penguinrandomhouse.com/creativewriting.

There is a uniqueness in spoken word poetry, there is a certain level of added magic when written words come alive through performance. Spoken word relies on the use of rhythm, rhyme, word play, and often times slang.

Our 2017 winner for the Maya Angelou Award For Spoken Word Poem was Quameek English from Brooklyn Generation High School. Our 2018 winner can be YOU.

The deadline to apply is fast approaching, start your application today by going to foundation.penguinrandomhouse.com/creativewriting.

The beauty of poetry lies in the unique way it allows stories to be passed on, thoughts to be shared, and lingering feelings to be made into eternal marks etched into history.

The Penguin Random House Creative Writing Awards competition was created specifically to encourage, support, and reward the creation of brilliant poetry like Julia Catalano's, one of our 2017 Poetry winners.

This can be YOUR year! Text IWRITE to 41411 or go to foundation.penguinrandomhouse.com/creativewriting and start your application today.

General information

We at Penguin Random House are passionate about encouraging the next generation of readers and authors and promoting diverse voices and stories. For 25 years, we have supported this mission through the Penguin Random House Creative Writing Awards, which in 2019 is entering into an innovative new partnership with We Need Diverse Books. Through this program, we will award college scholarships of up to $10,000 each to five U.S. high school seniors, nationwide. Creative Writing Awards winners have gone on to become professional and award-winning authors. Since 1994, this program has awarded more than $2.6 million dollars to public high school students for original poetry, memoir/personal essay, fiction/drama, and spoken-word compositions. This signature program continues to empower and celebrate hundreds of young writers each year and underscores our unwavering commitment to identifying and nurturing new literary talent.
