Scribblerzone celebrates National Writing Day with the launch on a children's writing competition
We know that research shows that children who love writing write 7 times above their expected levels at school.* We also know that children love writing competitions as can be seen by the thousands that enter the BBC’s 500 words competition.
Tonya Meers co-founder of ScribblerZone says “National Writing Day is an annual event that celebrates writing and we love to do anything that encourages children to write which is why we are running a writing competition for 7-13 year olds.”
There are 2 categories, one for 7-10 year olds and the other for 11 – 13 year olds.
- A full membership to ScribblerZone worth £180 per year;
- Their story published in an anthology that we’ll be publishing at the end of the year; and
- £20 worth of books of their choice.
- The second prize will be their story published in the anthology; and
- £10 worth of books of their choice.
All the children need to do is write a story with theme ’The night I got locked in the museum’.
The competition opens on the 24th June and closes 31st July 2020 midnight (BST). The winners will be notified on the 4th September.
“Tonya adds, we can’t wait to read the stories the kids come up with as they’ve got such fantastic imaginations and we think that this theme will give them lots of opportunities to come up with all sorts of possibilities. In addition when the children submit their stories they will also get the free membership level so they will continue to get lots of writing inspiration as well as being able to read interviews with other authors and those involved in the literary world so they’ll get lots of tips from the experts.”
