2018 Literary Feast

Author Day for Students


Authors engage with thousands of students at Broward County high schools to discuss their work and the craft of writing. Literary Feast Featured authors, as well as local authors also announce the winners of the annual Author Day for Students Short Story Contest, with more than 500 students participating each year. 

The theme for this year's short story contest is Hurray for Heroes!

The theme is inspired by the work of Brad Meltzer, who serves as the Honorary Chair of Literary Feast 2018. Brad Meltzer is the #1 New York Times best-selling author of adult thrillers as well as a series of children's books about heroes. You may read more about Brad Meltzer at www.bradmeltzer.com.

2018 Literary Feast authors visit local schools on May 4, 2018. Winners of the short story contest are announced at that time. Students are awarded 1st, 2nd and 3rd place prizes. One story is chosen as the overall "Best in Show" story from all the entries.
