Young Adventurers Writing Competition

Personalised Stories is running a creative writing competition for children. We are convinced there are many talented young writers who have yet to find the right story vehicle to show off their abilities to the world of children’s publishing. We believe this exciting opportunity could turn your writing ambitions into a reality.

Young adventurers are encouraged to write about an adventure they have been on, or where their imagination has taken them. The entrant is required to write the story using their own name throughout the storytelling .

The winner or young adventurer will receive a personalised illustrated version of their story and the winning school will receive a donation of £100.

Competition rules:

Entrants must be aged between 4 to 8 years old and a UK resident.

The word count of the story must be between 50-500 words, the choice is yours; however it must be spread over 14 pages.
