Me, Myself and I: BookTrust writing competition for primary school children



I wanted to share with you a very exciting BookTrust writing competition for children of primary school age.

The challenge is, to write a story of no more than 500 words.

The story can be about absolutely ANYTHING and can be set anywhere you like… In space, the jungle, at school, underwater, in a shop.

There’s just one VERY simple rule: YOU are the main character, and you have to use your REAL FIRST NAME.

You can take part as a class or enter individually.

The deadline is 5pm on Monday 21st May 2018.



Five winners will get the chance to see their entry turned into a printed one-off book – with their name on the cover!

Good luck!
