first-story-footprints-2016

Competition closes 23 November

Students and teachers: don’t miss First Story’s National Writing Competition for state secondary schools!

There’s not long left to write 850 words on the theme ‘Footprints’ – you must get your entries to us by midnight, Wednesday 23rd November.

Short stories are welcome – but any form of writing is accepted. Flash fiction, poetry, drama: follow the theme wherever it leads you.

If you’re a young writer, or teach someone who is, don’t miss the chance to win an incredible Arvon residential writing course, and see your work in print in our professional anthology. Teachers can write alongside their students and enter too.

The amazing Mark Haddon, Juno Dawson and Salena Godden are the writers judging this year’s competition, which will be shortlisted by Penguin Random House.

Good luck, happy writing, and make sure you get your entries to us by November 23rd!
