You are invited to submit a short story or poem for our Tails and Tales Summer Reading Story Stroll. Write about your pet, wild animals, or a mythical creature--anything that fits our Tails and Tales theme--and, if your story is accepted, we will print it out and display it in a park somewhere in Washoe County. You have the option of also submitting illustrations to accompany your writing.
Deadline for submissions is May 15. This event is open to people of all ages. See the full details and submission requirements here.
