WIN £500 OF BOOKS FOR YOUR SCHOOL LIBRARY
UPDATE: This competition is now CLOSED to submissions. We are judging the entries, to announce a winner in October
During the last few months I have been so inspired by all the stories you have sent me in response to my story starters, that I’m launching one final creative writing challenge with Blackwell’s Bookshop and Hachette Children’s Group. We’re inviting children aged 7 – 12 years across the UK to get creative in a new summer writing competition.
This is their opportunity to show off their creativity and be in with a chance to win £500 worth of books for their school library along with a school event with me, a £50 Blackwell’s voucher, signed copies of my books and a small number of exclusive printed copies of their very own story for their personal enjoyment.
