view the entries

We are celebrating National Library Week at the Canton Public Library with a special writing contest! All ages and resident/nonresident patrons are eligible to participate. The goal is to create a funny, original, unpublished opening sentence to the worst imaginary novel ever written. CPL's "It was a Dark and Stormy Night" bad-writing contest will receive entries during National Library Week, beginning 9:00 AM April 9 through 9:00 PM April 14. Three winners will be selected based on votes from your peers! Prizes will be gift certificates to local area merchants. All entries will be posted on CPL's website. The rules are simple: submit your entry (inappropriate situations or language will be disqualified) online or in-person at the Adult Reference Desk with your name and contact information. The winners will be contacted by April 30 and have a week to claim their prize. Good luck to all our participants! And don't forget to vote for the best of the worst!
