The magazine "Highlights for Children" is seeking the best and brightest for its 29th annual fiction contest.

Anyone who wants to write for children is invited to enter the competition, whether they've been published before or not. Contest submissions must be unpublished stories, 800 words or less, and must be postmarked between Jan. 1 and Jan. 31. This year's theme is stories set in the future. Stories glorifying war, crime or containing violence or derogatory humor are not acceptable. Manuscripts and envelopes should be clearly marked "Fiction Contest."

There is no entry form or fee, and writers who want their manuscripts returned or a list of winners should send a self-addressed stamped envelope with their submission.

For guidelines, write to Fiction Contest, Highlights for Children, 803 Church St., Honesdale, PA 18431.
