We are looking for inspiring original writing from local students as part of our first Creative Writing Competition for Royston Arts Festival 2017. In fewer than 500 words, you should write a fiction or non-fiction story with the theme “Changes” at its core.
There will be two age groupings: 5 to 9 and 10 to 16, and submissions should be made under categories of ‘fiction’ or ‘non-fiction’, for which we have two expert judging panels from the world of journalism and literature.
There are two different deadlines for entering this competition. The deadline if submitting to your school office is Thursday 13th July . The deadline for submissions sent directly to Creative Royston is 18.00 Friday 21st July.
Any submissions received after these dates will not be considered.
