National Lockdown Writing Competition

TIME FOR GENERATION LOCKDOWN TO WRITE


This is your opportunity to write about your experience. Until midnight on Friday the 17th of July, you can submit a piece of writing about what life has been like in lockdown and during the coronavirus. This could be a personal experience, a poem, or a creative story. All of you will have had a unique experience that is only yours, and only you can capture in words.

 

Your entry should be 700 words or under and you should submit in your age category.

Your work will then be read by a published author, who will then pick out the five best entries from your age group. These entries will then be included in a book published by John Catt Educational called ‘Generation Lockdown Writes.’

There will also be a range of other prizes for the winning entries, and a special celebratory book launch where you will have the opportunity to meet the authors.

All the money raised from the book will go to The BookTrust charity. This is an amazing charity which supports families and young people all over the UK to get involved in reading. We are hoping to raise thousands of pounds for them through the sales of the book.

Everything in your life has changed: school has stopped, you can’t see your friends; you can’t even leave your home more than once a day!

This is your opportunity to contribute to a project that is all about your voice, feelings and view on the events that have impacted on so many.

Can you imagine what it would feel like to have your work and name in a published book? Think how special it would be to have your writing read by one of the UK’s biggest authors!

You have nothing to lose: it is time for Generation Lockdown to write.You can enter the competition and find out more at  https://generationlockdown.co.uk/


As well as entering your writing online, could you please also send in your entry to Mrs Clemons on k.clemons@ivanhoe.co.uk as we would like to put a showcase of your work together and maybe a fab display for next year and future generations.

This is your moment to add to history!
