NEED SOME INSPIRATION?

To help you with your entry and inspire your creativity, we have been working with a bunch of fantastic writers, performers and illustrators to develop a handy booklet called The Craft of Storytelling.  

 

This booklet explores the four forms of storytelling that you can use to submit your competition entry (prose, poetry, scriptwriting or comic books). It includes hints and tips on developing characterscreating exciting new worlds and writing dialogue, as well as some fun activities which you can do by yourself at home!
