Deddington Writing Competition
Deddington Festival Junior Writing Competition
Now into its 12th successful year, Deddington Festival invites school age children and young people in the Oxfordshire area to let their imaginations run wild and submit a story or poem to the annual Writing Competition. Judged by a prestigious panel of professional writers, this is
your chance to create a special story. Whether it’s a funny limerick or a thought provoking short story, just have a go!
WHO CAN ENTER?
The competition is open to primary and secondary school age children and young people
WHAT MUST JUNIOR ENTRANTS WRITE?
You can write a story of up to 300 words or a poem of up to 50 words. We have chosen a theme “The door opened…” for younger, primary school age children. Use that idea somewhere in the story or poem. Young people of secondary school age may use the same theme, or they can choose a theme of their own.
