If the answer is YES, have a look at these –
The Betjamen Poetry Prize – it’s for poets aged 10 – 13 and the deadline for submissions is 31 July 2016, so you’ve got plenty of time. But there’s lots on the website to get your poetic juices going, courtesy of Indigo Williams, so have a look.
500 Words – a story writing competition for ages 5 – 9 and 10 – 13. The deadline for this one is much closer – 25 February 2016 – so you’ll need to get your skates on. There are some good prompts and interesting articles on this site too – well worth a visit.
Have a go – you can do it – and, as always, let us know how you get on!
