White Water Writers: Short Story Competition (Y9 - Y13)

White Water Writers is a project we run where young people work together to write a book in a week. At the end of the week it gets published. We've launched an online short story writing competition based on the same idea!

White Water Writers: Short Story Competition (Y9 - Y13)

White Water Writers is a project we run in schools, where small groups of young people write a book in a week. At the end of the week, the book is published and listed for sale on Amazon. Since we run this project in schools, and schools are currently closed, we thought we would launch an online short story competition using the same ideas.

Our project pack guides you through writing a short story. It will tell you how to think of an idea, how to plot out the story, and come up with your characters. Once you’re finished, you submit them to us for the chance to win £50 book vouchers, and to have your work published in a short story collection.

This project will also improve your English skills, including literacy and writing. Anyone can take part, from any age group. Just download the pack, work through it, and don’t forget to send us your story!
