Explore Learning are running a creative writing workshop to support the 8th annual National Young Writers’ Awards.
Children are invited to attend this session at Wokingham Library on Friday April 1 at 10am in order to enter this prestigious competition.
The Explore Learning National Young Writers Award has been designed to inspire children to write creatively and to reward talented young authors across the UK. Children will be required to write a story (up to 500 words) based on the theme ‘mash up’ which is to combine 2 different genres.
This year, the competition is being judged by Lauren Child, author of the immensely popular ‘Charlie & Lola’, ‘Clarice Bean’ and ‘Ruby Redfort’ children’s books. The winner receives a family trip to Disneyland Paris and £500 worth of books for their school, presented by Lauren Child.
Regional winners will receive a trophy at an awards ceremony and have their story published online!
This session is aimed at children aged 7 to 10 years old.
