Calling young budding writers! Enter Wicked Young Writer Awards! Closing date 18 March 2019.
WICKED, the award-winning West End musical that tells the incredible untold story of the witches of Oz, together with the National Literacy Trust celebrates its ninth year of the prestigious WICKED YOUNG WRITER AWARDS.
As in previous years, entrants can enter one of five different age categories; 5-7, 8-10, 11-14, 15-17, 18-25. In addition, the 2019 Awards see the fourth year of the FOR GOOD Award for Non-Fiction, encouraging 15-25 year olds to write essays or articles that recognise the positive impact that people can have on each other, their communities and the world we live in.
The WICKED FOR GOOD programme supports the charitable causes at the heart of the stage musical. There is a 750-word limit (not including the title words) on any theme.
In the fiction categories, any creative writing will be accepted, a story, play or poem, it can be something written at school or home that has not be entered into a competition before. If you prefer to write non-fiction, you may like to enter the Wicked: For Good Award for Non-Fiction and write an article, essay, biography, review or letter, to name a few!
A shortlist of 120 entrants from across the UK will see their work published in the WICKED YOUNG WRITER AWARDS anthology. They are also invited to an exclusive ceremony at London’s Apollo Victoria, home to the hit musical since 2006, where judges and members of the WICKED cast will read the winning stories and poems and announce who has won in each category.
