Sharpen your pencils

Do you love writing? We love reading!

During the lockdown, take part in our writing competition. The theme is ‘Everyday Heroes and Heroines’. We will split the entries into three age categories: Under 10s, 11-14, 15+. The winner of each category will receive a Chicken and Frog Bookshop gift certificate, to be redeemed either side of the lockdown.

The rules:

  • One entry per person
  • Entries must be clearly marked with your full name and date of birth
  • Entries to be emailed to, no later than 5:00pm on Saturday 30th May 2020
  • Entries can be typed or handwritten (and scanned!)

Ready, set, write!
