Is Young Writers a Scam?
How much does it cost?
There are no costs to the parents as a result of their child's work being included in a book. Parents have the option to buy copies of the book if they wish. As long as you give permission, your child's work will be included, even if you don't order.
All schools receive a copy of the book free of charge for their school library. This means that if you do not wish to order you and your child can still see their work in print.
If you do wish to order books are priced at £15.99. We also give you the opportunity to take advantage of our 3 for 2 offers (so you can order for family and friends at a discounted price, or even club together with other parents to get a reduced price).
The price of the book reflects the cost and time of producing the book. For more information please see 'cost of book' in the FAQs.
How is Young Writers a competition?
Prizes are awarded to individual children and to schools - prizes can include money for school resources and laptops/book tokens for children. Some of our recent competition prizes have included £1000 to the school with the best overall entries. For more information on recently awarded prizes please see the winners section of our site.
Young Writers endeavours to include as many children as possible in our publications. We believe that seeing their work in print is a fantastic achievement that encourages children to get excited about writing and reading. Each child included receives a certificate and a bookmark to celebrate their achievement, although being published is not the prize.
What are the educational benefits?
For children, seeing their work in print is a great confidence boost. It also encourages them to participate in and enjoy creative writing.
When will we see the books?
From entering the competition to seeing the work in print normally takes around 12 weeks.
We have to allow time for:
