· 20 lines of a poem
· 500 words of prose
· 4 comic book panels (within an A4 page)
· 300 words of script/spoken word
Top prize: Kindle E-reader
First and second runner-up: £30 voucher
Prizes will be awarded in three age categories: 10–11, 12–13 and 14–16.
For full details on how to enter download the competition poster below
Please submit your entry via the form at the top of this page (or bottom if you're using a mobile device!) by 3pm Monday 27th July 2020.
NEED SOME INSPIRATION?
To help you with your entry and inspire your creativity, we have been working with a bunch of fantastic writers, performers and illustrators to develop a handy booklet called The Craft of Storytelling.
This booklet explores the four forms of storytelling that you can use to submit your competition entry (prose, poetry, scriptwriting or comic books). It includes hints and tips on developing characters, creating exciting new worlds and writing dialogue, as well as some fun activities which you can do by yourself at home!
