The Londonist Looking For Children's Stories #writing #Submissions

Send Us London Stories For Children And By Children

Have you seen a pig flying over the London Eye? Have you (or your favourite toy) visited the city and had a London adventure? Ever had a picnic with a witch in Hyde Park?
With the Imagine Children’s Festival taking place at the Southbank Centre from 9-22 February, we are turning over our short fiction section to stories by children, and stories for children. If you’re a young author-in-the-making, or a budding children’s writer, we want to hear your tales about London. Send us your story; entries that we enjoy reading the most will be published online.
There are two categories:
  • Stories written by children (anyone under 16)
  • Stories written for children, by grown-ups (anyone over 16)
What are we looking for?
  • The entries should be strongly linked to London (either set in London or heavily inspired by the city)
  • Your stories can have any theme (like sci-fi or historical) or none at all
  • There are no strict guidelines on story length. Entries might be only a few sentences or could be as long as 1,500 words.
We will publish the best of your stories on in February. There will be prizes for the best in each category.
Please send all entries to, including ‘‘Children’s stories’’ in the subject line and let us know in which category you are participating.
We promise to read and respond to all entries that we receive.
For inspiration check out our series of stories about London.
