Write On Norfolk

writeNorfolk County Council are giving away some great prizes to get kids in our area writing!

There’s no time like the summer to let your child’s imagination run wild.

Our Write On Norfolk competition will help to keep young minds active and writing skills sharp over the summer holidays. And there are great prizes to be won.

We want children aged from 5 - 13 to submit a piece of original creative writing – a poem, a story, a letter or anything in between.

The piece of writing should be no longer that 500 words and Norfolk has to appear at some point in the piece, whether it’s a story about pirates landing on the beach at Great Yarmouth or an ode to a dragon who lives in Norwich Castle, or a diary entry about a spooky happening in Thetford Forest.

Prizes up for grabs

  • Gold – Fire tablet and £40 Jarrolds Vouchers
  • Silver - £25 Jarrolds Vouchers
  • Bronze - £20 Jarrolds Vouchers

Plus all winners will be invited to select a book from the Jarrolds book section after the event.

All winners will be publicised in local media and online via social media and the Norfolk County Council website.

Entries close at 5pm on 31 August.

Check out all the details on the Norfolk County Council website.
