Let's Get Writing National Writing Competition Winners Announced!

In October 2013 Young Writers launched their Let’s Get Writing competition for the academic year and received 45,000 entries from over 1,100 schools nationwide!

Editors had the hard but rewarding task of selecting 3 school winners and short-listing 20 pupils’ work, which was sent to the judge, poet and author Roger Stevens, who then chose the 5 pupil winners. Roger had a tough time picking just 5 winners, in fact he chose to highly commend an extra pupil for their work too!

Each pupil has won a £50 National Book Token and has the opportunity to showcase some of their work on their own page on the Young Writers’ website: www.youngwriters.co.uk.
