The Book Arts Bash is a writing contest for homeschooled authors. The Book Arts Bash celebrates untrammeled creativity, and promotes the integration of writing across the curriculum. We put homeschooled students’ best work on the desks of literary agents, best-selling authors, and other industry professionals, to encourage young writers and connect great minds.
