DELIVERED BY: Hexham Book Festival CIC
Hexham Book Festival’s Short Story Competition (max 1000 words) for students from years 7&8 from schools in West Northumberland. The theme will be ‘Time Travel with the Romans’ and will focus on key issues – also relevant today- of invasion, slavery, immigration, integration and inclusion.
An author will deliver creative writing workshops at each school which will help enable reluctant readers and writers to participate in the competition. The author will also judge stories and award prizes at a celebratory event at The Sill.
