Inspiring Stories Competition

Posted: Wednesday 13th September 2017

You Can Foster Writing Competition! Budding Authors Take Note.....

This is your opportunity to unleash your creativity and have your stories heard across the North West, Yorkshire and beyond.

Your story could be a personal account of your own fostering experience, or an imaginative, inspirational tale you want to tell.

Draw it, write it – bring it to life however you choose. Whether it’s about fostering or something entirely different, fiction or non-fiction; if you’ve got an uplifting story about ambitions, dreams or determination – we want to hear it!

There will be five winners from varying age categories who will each have their stories published online, promoted across the North West and Yorkshire, and brought to life with a bespoke front-cover design. And if that’s not grabbed your attention, we’ve got an amazing panel of five established judges who will be reading your stories. We’ll be announcing our judging panel on Monday 18th September – follow us on Twitter and Facebook for the latest news.

Now for the serious stuff…

To enter our competition, you need to submit your story here by 5pm on Friday 17th November 2017.

The competition is open to children and young people up to the age of 25, who are, or have been, in foster care, as well as birth children of foster carers. Your submission can be written or illustrated, just make sure it’s no more than 800 words or two sides of A4. For full terms and conditions and more information please see here.
