‘A Write Laugh’ Story Competition

A note from children’s author Guy Bass :

At the moment, laughter can feel like a brief distraction from the serious business of lockdown, so with A Write Laugh, we’re making funny the focus. In the Before Times, I’d be out and about visiting schools, talking about books and having a laugh. I wanted to find a way to reconnect with readers and encourage you to think about stories in a way that doesn’t feel like work (as well as the far more selfish goal of cheering myself up in lockdown!). The sole aim of A Write Laugh is to make yourself, your friends and family, and hopefully me laugh until serious thoughts are sent packing. Good luck!

What You Can Win :

  • 1st prize winners will have their story published in an eBook that will be free to read and download online, a year’s subscription to The Week Junior and £100 worth of books from Little Tiger.
  • 2nd prize winners will have their story published in an eBook that will be free to read and download online, and £75 worth of books from Little Tiger.
