“I’m homeschooled. Am I eligible to enter?” 
Absolutely! Just write “homeschooled” in the blank that asks for your school name.

“There’s no indie bookstore in my town? What happens if I win?”
No problem. If there’s not an independent bookstore where you live, we’ll give you a gift card to M. Judson Booksellers in Greenville. You can shop online.

“My story goes over the word limit by a couple hundred words. Is that okay?”
In a word, nope. The guidelines will be strictly enforced. 

“I have more than one great poem. Can I send in two?”
Sorry, only one per student. The guidelines will be strictly enforced.

“May I enter in more than one category? I mean, can I enter a poem and a story?”
Of course. Go for it. But you may enter each category only one time.
