Creative Writing Competition
Enthral imaginations with creative writing as young writers create their own mini saga!
'Unsolved' invites your young writer to write a mini saga (a story told in just 100 words) inspired by the crime & mystery genre.
Will they fight for justice? Take on the role of detective in an enthralling whodunit? Or embark on an adventure as a fugitive?
There's a fun 1-minute video to introduce your young writer to the activity too - and why not use the weekly writing tips we publish on here and social media to help inspire them?
If you haven't got a printer, don't panic! Your young writer can write their work out and send us a photo, or type it up and email it over instead.
