80-82 Silverthorne Road Battersea

London SW8 3HE




Young people aged 14 to 18, who live in the UK, are invited to submit short stories of up to 1,000 words on any topic. The judges will be looking for high-quality writing, stories that demonstrate originality, imagination and creativity, and writers who can capture the reader and hold their attention.

The talented winning writer of the inaugural BBC Young Writers’ Award with Booktrust will have their story broadcast on the BBC and receive a set of personalised mentoring sessions with an adult author to help develop their writing skills.
