2020 FESTIVAL WRITING COMPETITION
The writing competition linked to the Festival covers three age categories:
11-14, 15-18 and 19-22; and two classes: poetry and prose.
Entries to the competition should be on one of the following themes:
The Mayflower sailed to America 400 years ago, taking the Pilgrim Fathers who were escaping persecution. Today asylum seekers are leaving the Middle East to try and make a new life in Europe. Imagine you are escaping from persecution and write a blog about your escape.
50 years of fashion: the current trend for ‘wear it once and throw it away’ is causing more pollution. How would you solve this problem?
Crime and punishment: does crime pay?
