Inkhead is a group of writers who believe you are never too young to start writing, and they are running a short-story competition for writers aged seven to 16, open until 12 April 2012. The challenge is to write a short story of no more than 1,000 words with one of the following titles:
- Fireflies and Mosquito Bites
- The Day of the Zombie
- The Mysterious Case of the Missing Millionaire
- One Day in My Future
- It's OK Not to be OK
Encourage your pupils to "loosen their pens" and get creative. There are cash prizes up for grabs and the competition could inspire the next JK Rowling!
