Bloomsbury’s VERY short story competition for young writers is back!


Budding authors, listen up. How would YOU fancy the chance to get one of your short stories showcased online for everyone to read AND a selection of new books for you to sink your teeth into? No, it’s not a dream – it’s the prize that Bloomsbury are genuinely offering in their 247tales competition.

In a nutshell: Every month, a Bloomsbury author will write their own short story on a particular topic – then it’s up to all 10 – 16 year olds in the UK that want to be a writer to pen their own story on that topic too. The catch? Your story can only be 247 words!

The competition launches at 2:47pm TODAY (World Book Day) with a 247tale from bestselling author Tony Bradman on the theme of The Ship. Details on how to enter this once-in-a-lifetime competition can be found right here. Authors taking part include Anne Cassidy, Jim Eldridge, Sarah Crossan, A.F. Harrold, Laura Powell and Sue Limb.
