LFC National Short Story Week Competition for Primary Schools

Budding young authors have the chance to win a really novel prize by entering a writing competition – a visit to their school by top children’s author Vivian French. The story-writing competition aims to celebrate National Short Story Week (12-18 November), and is being run by School Library Supplies specialist, LFC.

The competition is open to the first 250 primary schools who register, with each primary school allowed to submit a maximum of 10 entries. Pupils must be aged seven to 10 years to submit their entries which should be 350 to 500 words long and must contain three elements – creepy crawlies, a secret and the library.

They will be competing for a first prize, which will be a visit to the winning school by prolific children’s author Vivian French – giving pupils a chance to meet the face behind the books, and experience stories brought to life by their creator. Professional storyteller Vivian French is the bestselling author of The Tiara Club, The Tales from the Five Kingdoms and numerous picture books, plays, and novels for children and young adults. French has created such memorable characters as Iggy Pig, the Staple Street Gang and Tottie Pig. There will also be two further prizes, with a £100 LFC voucher going to the runner-up story and a £50 LFC voucher going to the one placed third.

Schools should register by 31 October and submit their entries by 30 November. The winners will be announced before Christmas with the first prize author’s visit taking place during the first half of the spring term, 2013
