The Child Writing Project

About the Child Writing Project

Each year, The Columbus Children’s Theatre selects a theme and collects stories written by students grades K-6. Over 1,000 submissions are received and the top 15-20 stories are compiled to create a hysterical, fast-paced entertaining sketch comedy show seen by thousands and thousands of children each year. A fantastic addition to any creative writing curriculum, The Child Writing Project promotes creativity and empowerment to young authors from all over Ohio.

We will soon be accepting submissions for the 2020 Child Writing Project
