About Us

Welcome to The Literacy Center

You are invited to write a piece of fiction between 500 and 1,000 words long. The only catch? We give you the first and last sentences. It’s up to you to fill in the rest.

Let your imagination fly and finish the story….!! 

The competition is on and open to the public in three divisions: Middle School, High School, and Adult. Each division has its own incredible judge, and prizes will be up for grabs! 

We are accepting entries throughout January and February 2021. 

The Literacy Center has dedicated to improving adult literacy and education for over 50 years!  We provide Basic Adult Literacy (BAL) and High School Equivalency (formerly GED) preparation programs.  We are funded by grants, individual and community donations, and special events.  We are a non-profit with a 501(c)3 tax status.
