We all know that we have some talented writers at Marsden who love to write their own stories. If this is you, I’m here to tell you that a new writing competition has been launched with a winning prize of £200 worth of National Book tokens!

This competition is open for all writers aged 6-18 and will be judged by six of the UK’s most exciting children’s authors. Three winners will be chosen for the £200 winning prize and further smaller prizes of National Book tokens will also be up for grabs. For this competition, simply write a short story of no more than 300 words, using the theme ‘BIG DREAMS‘. You can interpret this anyway you like: an epic fantasy inspired by a dream, an amazing adventure that takes place in another world, or a true-to-life story set in an imaginary dream place.

Now more than ever is a time for imagination with magical encounters and extraordinary adventures. While our world changes, stories still spread joy, give people comfort and allow people to dream!

If you would like to enter, please send your story to me: shume@marsdenprimary.org.uk before Thursday 28th May and I will enter it for you.

It would be lovely to read some of your big dreams stories so … get writing!
