If you are under 16 and interested in writing you are invited to enter the annual Young Writer of the Year competition run by Tyne & Esk Writers,’ in partnership with East and Midlothian Library Services. 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 the winners in each section will receive a family day pass to the 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 27th April.
We really look forward to receiving your competition entries.
