The Jacqueline Wilson Creative Writing Prize 2018


We are sure there are some budding writers out there who would be interested in entering the

Jaqueline Wilson Creative Writing Prize 2018, why not give it a go over the summer!

One lucky winner will have their story published in a Jacqueline Wilson book! They’ll also receive £100’s worth of WH Smith Vouchers, a year’s subscription to First News, a book bundle for their school library AND get to meet Jacqueline herself.

500 runners up will also get their names published in the same Jacqueline Wilson novel!

If you are between 7 - 12 years old then you are eligible to enter this exciting competition.

How to win!

All you need to do is write a story between 750 and 1000 words about an UNLIKELY FRIENDSHIP using the first line below, written by Jacqueline herself:

I'd wanted to find a special friend ever since I came here. However, I never thought I'd find such an amazing one! ...

It’s up to you to decide where the story goes after that but it must be something that you’ve made-up and not be about anyone or anything real.

How to enter!

Please go to this webpage and simply enter your details in the form located at the bottom of the webpage.

Remember to save your story in a separate location before you press submit! Please note that your story will be rejected if the length is more than 1000 words or if it contains any inappropriate words or themes or if it includes any of your personal information.

Your story cannot be returned, so remember to save a copy in a separate location before you send your letter in!
