Short Story Competition 2014 – a collaboration between Torchlight and Barnes Bookshop


Are you living with the new Jacqueline Wilson? Could your son be the next Anthony Horowitz? Now is their chance to tell their story!

We are delighted to announce the first annual Short Story Competition – a collaboration between Torchlight Tuition and Barnes Bookshop.

The competition has two age groups: 7-10 and 11-14; the only requirement is that the child lives or goes to school in the Borough of Richmond Upon Thames.

In celebration of the Barnes Community Association‘s Ruby Anniversary, we are taking ‘RUBY’ as this year’s theme – entrants are free to interpret the word as they choose. Imagination is the only limit!

Joining Torchlight and Barnes Bookshop on the judging panel, is children’s author and illustrator, Marcia Williams.
