Thanks to everyone who came to see me at Leas Cliff Hall today – all 1500 of you in total – with the two sessions. I had a great time and hope you did too.
Lots of you were interested in writing competitions and I’m going to post them on my website as they come up. But in the meantime it’s definitely worth taking a look at the Scribbler magazine http://www.scribblermagazine.com/sample-issue/ which runs lots of writing competitions throughout the year and has lots of information for young writers.
Plus (it doesn’t matter if you’re not a girl!) you should check out http://girlsheartbooks.com/competitions/ they have lots of competitions to win free books, plus writing advice, plus you can put your own writing up on the blog 🙂
