CALLING ALL CHILDREN AND YOUNG ADULTS!

DYSPRAXIA FOUNDATION CREATIVE WRITING CHALLENGE

Team Dyspraxia know that young people with dyspraxia can be very imaginative so they have decided to launch this creative writing challenge. Can you harness your imagination and energy to produce a piece of creative writing for the Dyspraxia Foundation?

We are looking for pieces of non fiction, short stories and poems up to 500 words long on the themes of -

My Life
Hopes and Dreams
Adventures

These will be published in a book which will be available to purchase from the Dyspraxia Foundation in time for Christmas.

This opportunity is open to members of the Dyspraxia Foundation aged up to and including 25 years. We hope to include around 100 entries in the book. If multiple contributions are submitted, the Dyspraxia Foundation reserves the right to select those that are published. If we receive more contributions than we are able to publish, they will be included on the Dyspraxia Foundation website.

Send your entry by email to:admin@dyspraxiafoundation.org.uk

or post to: Team Dyspraxia Writing Challenge, Dyspraxia Foundation, 8 West Alley, Hitchin, Herts SG5 1EG

Include name, address, contact details and age of contributor.

Entries to be received by 12 noon on 15th September 2011

How interesting! I might enter this, but there IS one teeny tiny problem. There's no way I can write just 500 words! :lol:

I have enterred, I'm not going to get my hopes up about it getting chosen :p

It is just a story when I was about 5 and there was a flood. I use to live in watford and it was a really bad flood, so it is one of those memories which has always stuck XD
