On Wednesday we launched the YNWC 2020 with our partners at the National Centre for Writing and Norfolk County Council.

We were treated to some amazing readings by young writers from across Norfolk, including Young Creatives from OPENNorwich.

The competition is open to anyone aged 11-18 from Norfolk. You can submit stories, lyrics, narrative for games, graphic stories, poems, spoken word, scripts, podcasts, plays, articles, journalism or essays. With a chance to win prizes, mentoring and the opportunity to be published….

The word limits are as:

  • Stories, lyrics, narrative for games, poems, spoken word, scripts, podcasts, plays, articles, journalism, essays – one side of A4 or up to 40 lines
  • Graphic stories – up to four sides of A4

Audio entries can be up to five minutes in length.

The closing date for entries is 5pm on Monday 25 May 2020.
