Once Upon a Time is the brand new, fun creative writing competition for young writers aged 4-11 years.
We are inviting schools in the UK to submit their pupils' mini sagas to us. A mini saga is a complete story written in just 100 words! Using our winter-themed pack teachers can inspire and enthuse pupils to write a mini saga on a theme of their choice, ensuring originality and brrr-illiant fun!
Each mini saga 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, with the best poet in each collection winning a £10 book token. The best school in the series will win £1,000!
To support teachers Young Writers provides free teacher resources in line with the National Curriculum, including a lesson plan and a 'My Day At School' poem template for Reception Class. All our competition information and resources can be viewed and downloaded for free here.
Once Upon A Time is now open to 4-11 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.
