Creative Writing Competition

Global Campus is helping your child become a writing superhero

s

The creative writing competition is upon us, a little earlier this year!

Your child will be hearing more about this from their class teacher soon, but in the meanwhile I would strongly encourage your child to get on to Global campus and explore the ‘Creative Writing Competition’ page, in the ‘Writers Corner’. There they will find informative videos about the challenge and a great range of online lessons to help support their writing process.

Below I have outlined the key details for your interest and so you can offer words of encouragement to your children to undertake this challenge!

Best,

David McCammon

 

Creative Writing Competition

 

Launch: 14th September

Submission Date: 4th December

Winners Announced: 10th February

 

 

Theme:

Your challenge is to develop a piece with both a written and visual element, inspired by Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls. However, the elements you submit must be your own original work. 

 

Written Element

Your written element should be a children's biography about a local, national, or regional climate change "rebel". 

We encourage you to explore one of these themes within your biography:

What does it mean to be a climate rebel?

What does a climate rebel look like?

There is a 250 word limit for your written piece. 

We can only accept entries in English, but you are welcome to write your story in another language and provide a translation.

 

Visual Element

Your visual element should be a portrait of your climate rebel. 

You can create your portrait in any style and using any medium, but you are encouraged to follow the Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls illustrators' brief. 

Your portrait should be no larger than A4 size. 

 

Age Categories

The Creative Writing Competition is open to all NAE students. 

There are four age categories for the competition:

  • Under 8
  • 8-11
  • 11-14
  • 14-18

You are encouraged to work in pairs and groups to create your stories and portraits, but you can only submit one entry per person or group.

Before you start MAKE SURE to sign on to GLOBAL CAMPUS and go to the WRITERS CORNER. Here you will have very useful videos and much more information, tips and advice – giving you a better chance at succeeding! This area has an introduction video and various sections with online learning materials to help support you before you write, as you write and as you edit your final version.
