Write Wai PR & Copywriting Services have launched their 4th Writing Competition for 11 to 18-year-olds, with the support of four great local organisations.
Young people have chance of winning one of our fabulous prizes, if they enter by writing 300 to 400 on an historic theme (fact or fiction). Why not encourage your sons and daughters or nieces and nephews to enter? It would look great on their CVs in the future.
It is the fourth year that Write Wai PR & Copywriting Services have run our writing competition (each year it is supported by the Colchester Gazette and a partner). This year Andrew Summers of Essex Hundred Publications is running our History Writing Competition with us, and Colchester Castle and Wivenhoe Bookshop are sponsoring prizes.
This year’s competition is bigger and better than ever before. At a time when standards of English seem to be dropping due to the digital era we live in, it’s good to encourage young people in their writing skills, isn’t it?
To enter 11 to 18-year-olds simply need to pick a local history topic, write 300 – 400 words (fact or fiction) and submit their entry to firstname.lastname@example.org by midday on December 31st 2017.
This Year’s Prizes are:
- 1st A digital camera for you and £100 worth of books for your school (sponsored by Write Wai PR & Copywriting Services and Essex 100 publications)
- 2nd An annual pass for 2 people for Colchester Castle plus a guided tour & book sponsored by Colchester Castle
- 3rd £50 book token sponsored by Wivenhoe Bookshop
- Bonus Prize! The Colchester Gazette will publish the top 3 stories and the 3 winners will have a guided tour of their offices.
