Launching on National Writing Day, Wild About Writing is a writing competition for short stories inspired by the natural environment. Open to children aged 7-13 it is an invitation to children and their families to get outside and explore the natural world around them and to use their experiences as a jumping off point for writing a story. There are two categories; 7-10 & 11-13 years and the two winning stories will be published in EADT Suffolk Magazine later this year. The winners will also receive book tokens and a day pass to RSPB Minsmere, Suffolk.

Wild About Writing judges include celebrated writer and illustrator James Mayhew, whose books include the ‘Katie’ and ‘Ella Bella Ballerina’ series and Francesca Armour-Chelu, author of ‘Fenn Halflin and the Fear Zero’ and ‘Fenn Halflin and the Seaborn’.

Entries must be made via the Wild About Writing website and the closing date is August 31st 2019. For more information and full terms and conditions visit www.wildaboutwriting.org.uk

Wild About Writing is supported by Arts Council England and the National Lottery.
