Writing the riots: what did last summer's riots mean to you?
Deadline: Mon 26 Mar 2012
This Booktrust competition is open to young people aged 13 to 17

Booktrust’s Writer in Residence, teen author Bali Rai is looking for the best story inspired by last year’s riots. Did you know anyone involved in the riots or affected by them? Why do you think they started? Did they affect your community? Do you think they will happen again? In no more than 500 words, write a short story based on the UK riots last summer.

This competition is open to young people aged 13 to 17. The deadline for entries is 26 March 2012.

What you can win

The winner will win a day at Random House Children's Books with author Bali Rai. Learn all about the secrets of the publishing world, how a book is bought and edited, marketed and sold and have lunch with Bali and his editor. Plus win a complete signed set of Bali’s books and have your story published on the Booktrust website.

Three runners-up will receive a complete signed set of Bali’s books and your story published on the Booktrust website.
