We are very excited to announce The Lockdown Diaries, a brand new creative writing project for students aged 10-16 in Norfolk and Suffolk.
The Lockdown Diaries gives local students a creative outlet to reflect and respond to the COVID-19 lockdown. Over the coming weeks we will be running a series of activities for students and their families to take part in.
At the end of the project, a selection of entries from each activity will be chosen to feature in The Lockdown Diaries story collection, to celebrate the creativity and resilience of the region's young people during these extraordinary times.
The Lockdown Diaries will be illustrated, printed and distributed to UEA Outreach partner schools across Norfolk and Suffolk in the autumn term. See here for a full list of partner schools, students who do not attend a partner school can request a copy of the story collection should their writing feature.
Here's a list of the activities you can take part in for a chance to win prizes and have your work published in The Lockdown Diaries:
