COVID-19 Update

Due to schools, pre-schools, nurseries and colleges closing over the UK, we will be suspending announcing competition results and shipping orders to schools with immediate effect (from 8am Thursday 19th March 2020).

Our competitions are still open and will be extended to the 30th April 2020. Resources can be downloaded and entries can be uploaded or emailed.

We are still printing books, and if you have paid for home delivery you will receive your order shortly after publication - we cannot give an exact date due to our staff levels changing daily.

If your school remains open for key workers’ children and you can still take delivery of your parents’ orders, please get in touch so we can arrange this.

As we currently now have skeleton staff in the office, please bear with us as we are answering emails and packing books as fast as we can, trying to keep our service levels as ‘normal’ as possible for you.

We won’t be taking Direct Message queries on social media and our phone lines are now closed as our Customer Care team are working remotely. You can still email [email protected] with your enquiries and we will reply as soon as we can.

These are unprecedented times and we are following the government advice daily. As much as it can be, we are working ‘business as usual’.

From us all here at Young Writers, thank you for your patience and understanding. We’ll keep our website and social media updated as and when things change. Stay safe.
