Young Writers' Festival 2021 is now open for entries!


6 October 2021

Arts Richmond Young Writers' Festival is open to all young people who either live or attend school/clubs in the borough of Richmond upon Thames.

The Young Writers' Festival is a chance to demonstrate writing skills of any form: stories, descriptive writing, poems, playlets, lyrics for songs - whatever the imagination can devise. Entries close on 3 December 2021.

Entries are judged in four age groups with prizes for all winning entries. In addition, Arts Richmond appoints a Junior and Senior Laureate who will be given opportunities during the following year to write about events taking place in the borough, for possible publication. All shortlisted entrants will be invited to a gala awards event in a prestigious venue Spring 2022.
