Short Story Competition for Kids

Get ready for an exciting short-story competition, just for kids!  Tertulia Bookshop will invite young writers to unleash their creativity and craft amazing stories.  Open to all school-aged children, this competition is a fantastic opportunity to showcase your imagination and story-telling skills.

A theme will be announced during the summer holidays and children will be able to enter their stories in various categories, including graphic novels and even entries in different languages.  In early September, we'll kick off the competition with fun events at local schools, where you might even meet a real author!

Submit your stories by email, or through your school, by the deadline.  Awesome prizes will be awarded in different age groups and every participant will receive a certificate and a special €5 voucher from National Book Tokens.  Join us at a special event where we'll celebrate all our talented young writers and hand out the prizes and certificates.

Don't miss out on this chance to let your imagination run wild and share your unique story with the world!
