This amazing creative writing competition gives you the chance to develop your talents and win some truly magical prizes.

You could write a story, a poem, or even a play, and you can write about absolutely anything you like!


The prizes

All winners will also get:

• Four tickets to see the London production of WICKED at the Apollo Victoria Theatre.
• To meet cast members after the show and enjoy an exclusive backstage tour.
• £50 worth of books/eBooks tokens to spend.
