Young writer of the year competition

Win prizes: Writing Competition for Children.


Encouraged by the large number of entries to the ‘Young Writer of the Year’ competition last year, Tyne and Esk Writers, in partnership with East Lothian and Midlothian library services, is running this event this year.
If you are under 16 and interested in writing, you are invited to enter the competition. Your story or poem can be about any subject and you could win a great prize. The competition is being sponsored by the Scottish Seabird Centre and Awards for All. The winners in each section will receive a family day pass to the Scottish Seabird Centre as well as a £10 book token. The overall winners in both the primary and secondary section will also receive an iPod Shuffle.
There are two groups of entry for children and young people who live or go to school in East Lothian and Midlothian: P4 – P7 and S1-S4 and two sets of prizes, one for East Lothian and one for Midlothian in best poetry and best prose. The main judge of the competition is Tom Murray, the Creative Writing Fellow for Tyne and Esk Writers.

Entry forms will be available in schools and libraries in East Lothian and Midlothian by the 8 April.

We really look forward to receiving your competition entries.
