My Twist on a Tale – literary competition

Posted in News

We have received a communication from Lisa and the Pearson team:

My Twist on a Tale was launched on International Literacy Day (Sunday 8th September), and will see traditional tales reimagined as children and young people across key stages tear up the rule book and give their 21st Century take on fairy tales, fables and regional folk stories of old. They’ll be empowered to put themselves at the heart of their own modern-day stories, drawing on their personal interests, background and experiences.

While the winners will see their works published as a collection of short stories for all to enjoy, we want everyone who takes part to find their voice, express themselves freely and have fun along the way!

More information is available here.

The deadline is Friday 29th November 2019.
