Could your child be the next JK Rowling?

Search underway for Britain’s best young storywriter


Blossom Magazine, has launched a story-writing competition in association with World Book Day to inspire children to put pencil to paper and write an imaginative story for the magazine. 


The winning story will be printed in the magazine and illustrated by the Blossom artist.

The winner will also receive a visit to their school or nursery from the hugely successful Princess Poppy author, Janey Louise Jones; a bundle of books for them and their school library from Random House; and a special keepsake bound version of their story.

Andrea Turton, Blossom editor, says: “We’re hoping that little ones will be inspired to pick up a pencil and write an imaginative story that will entertain our readers! The story could take the Blossom Girls anywhere, doing anything – the possibilities are endless!”

The entries should be a maximum of 500 words and feature the four Blossom Girls characters – Lily, Rose, Daisy and Violet – who appear in each issue of the magazine.

The competition is open from 5th February to 8th March 2014, full details can be found in Blossom Magazine issue 10 (on sale 5th Feb).
