Booktrust Short Story Competition

Yes You Can!

Enter Booktrust’s short story competition to be President for a Day

Booktrust is inviting young writers to enter a short story competition to win a place on the judging panel for their internationally acclaimed Booktrust Teenage Prize 2009.

The charity that encourages people of all ages to enjoy reading is challenging young writers aged 11-16 to write a 500-word short story with the title President for a Day.

The deadline for competition entries is 27 July 2009. The guidelines and entry form are available for download from the website

The authors of the four best short stories will win a place on the judging panel for the Booktrust Teenage Prize 2009.

They will join Times journalist Alyson Rudd, author Marcus Sedgwick, librarian Judi James, writer and translator Daniel Hahn and Aniketa Khushu, a young judge whose short story won her a place on the judging panel last year.
