For the past twelve years, Explore Learning has been inspiring children to write, from the young authors in the making to those. a little more reluctant. 
We have been through a lot this year, but we've also had a lot more opportunity to spend more time together and find out more about ourselves as people. About what makes us magical!
We're inviting children across the UK aged 4-14 to pen a 500-word story around the theme of "Hidden Talents". Everybody has a talent, anybody can be a writer. 
This year, our Writers' Awards will be judged by Radio DJ, presenter and children's author Greg James. 

“Hidden Talents is a brilliant theme for this year’s Explore Learning Writers Awards. Whenever I meet young readers, I love finding out what secret skills or knowledge they have. Our characters in the Kid Normal series are full of surprises and I’m always amazed at how wild and fearless our reader’s imaginations are too. My advice for this competition is to let your mind run wild, there’s no such thing as an idea that’s too silly or fantastical. Writing is one of the most enjoyable things you can do with your brain, so… have fun!”

Competition opens - 28th September 2020
Deadline to enter - 28th October 2020
