Story Time

Each year, the Acorn Newspapers ask their readers both young and old to submit entries for the publication’s 100-word fiction story writing contest.

The challenge is daunting, but as you’ll see from these 2016 winners, the results (many of them) are out of this world!

Please click on the newspaper of your choice, and enjoy the stories.
