What’s your story? Educational literacy initiative, StageofLife.com, hosts an international writing contest every month centered around a specific “life” topic. Topic themes have ranged from mental health to consumerism to fear to goal setting to our relationship with nature. The writing community welcomes nearly 1,000,000 teens, college students, teachers, parents and bloggers each year who come to read the stories or enter the writing contests. Answer the monthly “life question” by submitting a 500-word essay to StageofLife.com tailored to the writing prompt and be automatically entered into the writing contest.
