NEW WRITING COMPETITION ‘UNREAL’

PLEASE NOTE THAT YOUR NAME, AGE AND STORY NAME MUST BE IN THE SUBJECT LINE OF YOUR EMAIL!

EMAILS THAT DON’T HAVE THIS INFORMATION MAY BE SENT TO THE SPAM FOLDER AND WE WON’T GET TO READ THEM!

Our new writing competition opens today. It is open to kids aged 8+ and adults.

The theme is ‘unreal’ so you can write whatever you want as long as there is some aspect of your story that IS NOT real.

This time we have four categories:

  • 8-10
  • 11-13
  • 14-18
  • Adult

In our last competition we had a lot of trouble with entries that weren’t submitted in the right format.

We can’t read your story if we can’t open it on our computer so please follow the ‘FORMAT’ guidelines at the bottom of this post.

PRIZES AND CERTIFICATES

KIDS AND TEENS WINNERS  – Winners in the kids and teens categories will receive an online writing course.

The courses have six sessions for you to read and complete, and you will receive individual feedback on your work. You can find out more about them here: http://writingclassesforkids.com/products/writing-classes/

Entry into the competition for kids and teens is FREE!

EVERY child and teen entry will receive at least a certificate.

We need to keep administration costs down so that the competition can remain FREE to kids and teens.

So, unfortunately, due to the large number of entries we receive, we are no longer able to provide personalised certificates.

 We are also unable to provide individual feedback.

ADULT WINNERS  – Winners in the adult category will receive a five page manuscript assessment and a free online writing course.

The courses have six sessions for you to read and complete, and you will receive individual feedback on your work. You can find out more about them here: http://writingclassesforkids.com/products/writing-classes/

Entry into the adult writing competition is $10 to cover the administration costs. Payments can be made online through PayPal here http://writingclassesforkids.com/products/

    If I am 13 and write the story and enter now but I will be 14 when the competition closes should I enter the 11-13 category or the 14-18 category?

    Hi Dee, for the unreal competition, will my story be eligible if it is set in a real world, but is fictitious?
