Just in case you get some writing done over the holidays, there are some competitions you might want to enter.
Deadline is 14th January 2013. Maximum of 1000 words for authors aged 13-17. Feel free to use illustrations or submit graphic novels. The prizes are great too!
There are three themes:
- The Holiday Secret
- Strangers in Town
- New Beginnings
There are many other writing opportunities listed on the Scottish BookTrust website in the Young Writers section.
