Red House seeks talented young writers for 2013 Yearbook!
Do you know a budding writer, poet, or journalist? If so, the Red House Young Writer’s Yearbook needs YOU…
They want aspiring young writers from around the country to enter the 2013 Red House Young Writers’ Yearbook competition and win the chance to see their stories or poems published in a stunningly produced and designed book.
To enter the competition, children should be aged between 7 and 17. They can submit a story, poem or article and it’s up to the individual what subject they choose to write about. This year the competition entries will be divided into four age categories: 7+, 9+, 11+ and 13+. The deadline is 31st July 2013.
As well as becoming a published author, the winners will also earn the opportunity to attend a Red House Young Writers’ Workshop, with a high-profile children’s author, held – for the first time ever- as part of the celebrated Imagine Children’s Festival at London’s Southbank Centre. The workshop will provide participants with a unique, fun and stimulating opportunity to help them hone their skills and provide lots of feedback to encourage and inspire!
Matt Whyman, author of Gold Strike and The Savages says:
The Red House Young Writer’s Yearbook aims to showcase young talent in the raw. It provides a platform for new writers as they get to grips with their craft, and offers a huge boost to their confidence in seeing their work in print for the very first time. Now with a series of workshops for the contributors, to be held at the Imagine Children’s Festival, it’s time to put your stories and poems into words and just see where it takes you.
