Rooglewood Press Writing Contest!

Rooglewood Press holds an annual fairy tale creative writing contest. Their first collection was Cinderella retellings. It's currently a bestseller and has just been translated into Italian. Their second collection is Beauty and Beast and will be released this summer. Now they're announcing the subject of their 3rd annual contest ... ready for this?

Rooglewood Press is delighted to introduce their third fairy tale novella contest—

Five Magic Spindles
a collection of “Sleeping Beauty” stories

    The challenge is to write a retelling of the beloved fairy tale in any genre or setting you like.
Make certain your story is recognizably “Sleeping Beauty,” but have fun with it as well. Make it yours!

    Rooglewood Press will be selecting five winners to be published in the Five Magic Spindles
collection, which will be packaged up with the phenomenal cover you see here. Maybe your
name will be one of the five listed?

    All the contest rules and information (how to enter, story details, deadline etc.) may be found on the Rooglewood Press website. Just click HERE and you will go right to the page.
Rooglewood Press’s first collection, Five Glass Slippers is available for purchase, and our
second collection, Five Enchanted Roses is scheduled to launch on July 27, and is currently
available for pre-order. Be certain to get a copy of each and see what previous winners did with
their wonderful retellings.

Happy brainstorming and writing!!



  1. What a neat idea. I wish I had the inspiration and time to enter. I'll be keeping the contest on my radar for next year though.

  2. This sounds so fun! I will have to look into it. I have really been enjoying Taking Dictation as well as Emily Chapman's blog Entirely Bonkers. Y'all's writing ids wonderful! I can't wait to get my hands on my own copy of Ain't We Got Fun! It sounds like such a good book, not to mention that my sister and I seem to have similar personalities to the characters. :-D My sister, a dear friend and I just started our blog A Mighty Flame. We are all interested in writing and find it very inspiring to other young girls doing the same thing!!! I dream of publishing a book someday.... maybe that can be a reality! Have a wonderful weekend!
    Blessings in Christ,
