Forest of Dean short story competition for young people

Theme:  'Turning Point'

A chance to win up to £100 and be published

Closing date Sunday 10th September

The Forest of Dean Rotary Club has teamed up with Dean Scribblers to launch a new writing competition for ages 7-18 years. The theme is 'Turning Point' and there's a choice of one of three extraordinary picture prompts and optional first sentences to fire the imaginations.

The judges are looking for stories that are unique, exciting, and full of character. Think you know someone who has what it takes? Stories can be submitted online or by dropping off a hard copy at any of the Forest of Dean libraries

Every longlisted entry will be featured in an anthology, with some fantastic prizes for the winners.

Entrants must either go to school or live within the Forest of Dean District Council area.
