Exciting news - A competition! Essex Year of Reading Storytelling Competition is looking for short stories up to 750 words on the theme “Essex in the past, present or future”. Stories can be words only, or include illustrations. They also welcome storyboards! Shortlisted entries will receive certificates and will be published on the Essex Year of Reading app. The overall winner will receive a £100 book token. 


You might want to write a short story about something fictional that happened in your home town many years ago, or even in the future! You may even like to write a story based on something you have actually done in Essex! The choice is yours, so get creative :)


Please either send in entries and I will send them off for you, or you can send them yourself using the information below. Please let me know which option you would like when turning in the home learning.


Please email your entry to or send via post to: Essex Year of Reading Competition, Essex Library Services, County Hall, Market Road, Chelmsford, Essex, CM1 1QH.

Please state your name, age, address, email and telephone number on your entry.
