Falkirk Storytelling Festival 2017
We are calling upon budding fiction writers to enter our short story competition as part of this year’s Falkirk Storytelling Festival. Entrants are invited to write an original story on the theme of, ‘My Town’ in 300 words or fewer. Your story doesn’t have to be about Falkirk – it can be about anywhere that fits the description and the subject matter of your narrative.
There are three age categories and one entry per category will be selected as the winner. The age groups are 11 yrs and under, 12 – 17 and 18yrs and over. The winning entry in each age category will be awarded the accolade of Falkirk Storytellling Festival Short Story Champion 2017, and receive a mounted output of their work courtesy of Eden Consultancy Group, and a £50 Howgate Gift Card. The winners will also receive a pair tickets to a Falkirk Football Club home game.
Our aim in this competition is to celebrate the wonderful imagination and creativity of children and adults alike. It’s a level playing field for anyone entering, as we will anonymise the stories before they go off to be marked by our judging panel.
Whether you are writing as part of a school project, club or from home, give our ‘My Town’ challenge a go!
