Henrietta Branford Writing Competition 2021
Deadline: Sun 23 May 2021
The Henrietta Branford Writing Competition is an annual competition for young people in the UK who enjoy writing stories which runs in conjunction with the prestigious Branford Boase Award.

Young people aged 19 or under are invited to finish a story started by Branford Boase Award winner, Liz Hyder.

Each story can be any length up to 1000 words, should have a title and connect to the starter paragraph. Entries will be judged by Prue Goodwin, consultant and lecturer in literacy learning and children’s literature.

Six winners will be invited to attend the Branford Boase Award celebration party in London in July, circumstances allowing. There they will meet Liz Hyder, author of last year’s brilliant winning book, ‘Bearmouth’ and the other authors shortlisted for the 2021 award as well as editors, publishers, agents, and other professionals in this field. They will receive a copy of each of the books shortlisted for the Branford Boase Award and be able to have their books signed.
