Creative Writing Competition

We are very excited to announce our second annual Creative Writing Competition!

We are looking for inspiring original writing from local people for Royston Arts Festival 2018. In fewer than 500 words, you should write a fiction or non-fiction story with the theme ‘Voyages of Discovery’ at its core.

This year we are excited to be able to open the competition up to adults as well, thanks to the support of The Rotary Club, and the continuing support of David’s Bookshop in Letchworth. There will be three age groupings: 5 to 9, 10 to 17 and 18+, 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.

Prizes of £50 of vouchers to spend at David’s Bookshop are available in each category. Details of how to enter can be viewed or downloaded by clicking HERE. Please also download the  COVER SHEET to accompany your entry.

There are two different deadlines for entering this competition. The deadline if submitting via your school office is Monday 16th July
2018. The deadline for submissions sent directly to Creative Royston is Monday 30th July 2018.

Any submissions received after these dates will not be considered.

…. and don’t forget our deadline of Friday 27th April for event submissions – see previous post below:
