Jesmond Library is once again running its popular annual creative writing competition.

This year the theme is “Do you want to know a secret?” With that as your starting point let your imagination take you anywhere it will.

There are four age categories:

Under 5 (100 words); under 13 (500 words); 13-18 (500 words); adult (1000 words)

In previous years we have received short stories, poetry and short scripts. We can’t wait to read your work.

Forms are available from the Library which is currently open between 2-4pm each Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, or you can print the image below. The entry fee is £3, with all proceeds going towards the Library.
