An exciting new prize will launch at the end of November.
From November 30 submissions to The Paul Cave Prize for Children's Literature will open to writers and poets from around the world.
"Writing an engaging children's story that grips the reader is difficult," says one of the judges, Tim Saunders.
"It's a great opportunity for budding writers especially when getting noticed by a publisher is one of life's great challenges."

Best short story - 5,000 words or under
Best flash fiction - 300 words or under
