Details of the Young Norfolk Writing Competition 2017 open to the young people

This is a region-wide competition for 11-18 year olds, for poetry, song lyrics, short stories, scripts, and essays – which is being run by Writers’ Centre Norwich, in collaboration with Young Norfolk Arts Trust and Norfolk County Council.

Entry is available to any 11 to 18 year old, whether or not in full-time education. Multiple entries are allowed, and the closing date is Monday 5 June 2017, 5pm.

 This year’s shortlisted authors will be invited to an exclusive workshop session with Matt Windle (aka. ‘the poet with punch’). Matt will also award prizes to the winners at a public celebration event on Saturday 8th July.
