'My Brilliant Career' Writing Competition
This year's competition is for young people. If you are a student in Year 10 or 11 at a Mole Valley school then this is for YOU. The piece you write should be called 'My Brilliant Career' and must be no more than 800 words long. And it MUST be by you, without help from anybody else.
What's it about? You may imagine writing this, that in some years' time you have worked your way to achieving your ideal career, and have perhaps become quite famous - maybe in music or writing or medicine or even politics - whatever is your chosen ambition in life. Using your imagination, tell your readers how you got there and what it's like to be so well known.
The prizes are given by Barton's Bookshop in Leatherhead. The first prize is £50 of book vouchers and the second prize is £25 of vouchers. Prizes will be presented by the proprietor of the bookshop in early November - time and place to be arranged, but if you win we'll contact you!
All entries must be received by Monday 23 October 2017.
How do you enter? Simple. We'd suggest that you think it over, put some notes together and then write your piece - check the number of words - rewrite perhaps? Then complete our application form and copy and paste your story there.
