Reading Competition 2019

write a story • win a chance to get it published • get it made into film

Our theme this year is ‘A Special Day’

This year we want you to write about a day that is special to you. It can be an anniversary of some kind – a birthday perhaps or a religious celebration. It can be a great day - the day your team won the cup or won gold – or a terrible day: Your team lost and there were no medals. It can be a day you want always to remember or a day you would rather forget. It can be fun – you fell in the duck pond – or epic – you landed on the moon. It can be your day or someone else’s day. All that matters is that it should be a day like no other – a Special Day.

Go to the page for your year to see what you have to do to enter.

Good luck!
