Dd is nearly 9 and writes some fabulous stories . She's always writing in notebooks and when she writes in school she is often sent to the head with her story . So I was thinking maybe entering her into competitions . I wouldn't even know where to start to find them . We are in the west of Scotland .
Wicked Young Writers Competition is a great one; it's national and based in London (it's the initiative of the musical 'Wicked'). Judged by Michael Morpurgo. I was down to the final 20 in the 18-25 category last year, it's a great experience. Just google Wicked Young Writers.
