Children aged 7 to 14 years old are invited to become part of the Commonwealth’s rich storytelling heritage by entering this year’s Short Story Writing Competition.

Participants must write a story set in their own country and can enter one of two age categories (7 – 10 year olds or 11 – 14 year olds). Stories and illustrations should be on the subject of ‘Peace’ in line with the Commonwealth theme of the Year. The competition is a great way for students to flex their creative muscles and add their voice to the Commonwealth’s rich storytelling heritage.

The deadline for all story submissions is 09:00 GMT on Tuesday 2 January 2018
