2019 Creative Writing Competition

We are very excited to announce our third annual Creative Writing Competition!
We are looking for inspiring original writing from local people for Royston Arts Festival 2019. In fewer than 500 words, you should write a fiction or non-fiction story with the theme “Our Planet” at its core.
Once again, the competition will be open to all ages, thanks to the continuing support of The Rotary Club and 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 downloaded by clicking HERE  and please also download the entry COVER SHEET .
The deadline for submissions is 18.00 Monday 29th July 2019. Any submission received after this date will not be considered.
