Mini Monologues is a brand new, inspiring, educational writing competition for young adults aged 11-18 years.
We are inviting schools in the UK to submit their pupils' mini monologues - a first person narrative written from a real person's or fictional character's point of view in only 100 words! Who inspires or intrigues today's youth? Whose footsteps would they walk in for a few minutes? Whose thoughts would they like to share? What event or situation could inspire a thought-provoking, emotionally-charged monologue ... ?
Each mini monologue submitted will be read by our editorial team and considered for a regional anthology. Published poets will then be in with the chance of being chosen as the winner from their region, resulting in their work on the front cover of the book! The best writer from the series will also be awarded a Kindle Fire HD!
To support teachers Young Writers provides free teacher resources in line with the National Curriculum, such as lesson plans, planning sheets and interactive PowerPoint presentations. All our competition information and resources can be viewed and downloaded for free here.
Mini Monologues is now open to 11-18 year-olds across the UK. To take part please visit our website. Entries can be submitted online or by post and need to reach us by Friday 19th December 2014.
