Young Sir Walter Scott Prize – Joan Lennon


Fancy having a go at the Young Sir Walter Scott Prize?  It’s the only writing competition in the UK dedicated to historical writing.  So what do they mean by history?  Any time up to the day before you were born!

Entries will be judged in two categories – 11 to 15 year-olds and 16 to 19 year-olds. The winners in each category will be published in a special YWSP anthology, and the two winners will be offered a travel grant of up to £500 each to enable them to visit an historic site of their choice anywhere in the UK.

Have a look here for all the details – and get writing!

(Though nobody’s expecting you to write on two different pages at the same time …)
