Is Your Child The UK’s Next Big Writing Talent?

The National Young Writers’ Awards is set to return with a bang as world renowned bestselling children’s author David Walliams has been named judge for 2018!

The competition, organised by tuition provider, Explore Learning which has a centre in Leicester has been running for ten years and has inspired hundreds of thousands of children across the UK to put pen to paper and give writing a try.

The theme for this year is ‘Heroes’ where children are tasked with writing a 500 word story all about their hero, whether that be their parent, a policeman or an idol they aspire to be like so young authors are being asked to get their thinking caps on and unleash their very best heroic tales!

The winner will be surprised at a school assembly by David who will announce the National Young Writer of the Year and present them with a trophy, a trip to Disneyland Paris for their family and £500 of books for their school! Every child that enters will receive a certificate to celebrate their story, along with personalised feedback from one of Explore Learning’s
inspirational tutors.

The top 10 entries will also receive £250 worth of books for their schools from Letts Revision, plus a large print of the opening line of their story by QuirkyLime.

Each of the regional winners will also win £50 worth of books for themselves. It’s very easy to enter. Children are invited to pick up an entry form from their local Explore Learning centre which can be found at Explore Learning Inside Sainsbury’s Fosse Park Leicester LE19 1WT and then simply return the completed entry to them before Sunday 29th April.

Or if children prefer, they can type their story and enter online at
