Deepings Literary Festival asks you to create a story to remember
Could you tell the tale behind an image which captures the imagination?
As part of this year’s Deepings Literary Festival, which takes place from Thursday, April 28 to Sunday, May 1, the popular short story competition returns.
The contest asks for a 500 word piece inspired by the pictured image of a railway station from Deeping St James.
The competition runs until March 31 with an adult category and two age groups for children (5-8 and 8-15 years), with top prize of a £50 book token.
Signed copies of Balancing Bernie by Deepings children’s author/illustrator, Ellie Sandall and The Primrose Railway Children by Jacqueline Wilson are on offer for the youngsters.
For further information and to submit entries, email firstname.lastname@example.org by the closing date of March 31.
