l What should we call this genre of writing for children and young people? "Non-fiction" starts with a negative, some people prefer "information books" and Blue Peter has an award for "the best book with facts in". The organisers of Adventures in the Real World want suggestions for a new name to help create a vision of what children's non-fiction can be and do. The two best ideas (selected by author Nicola Davies and TES books editor Geraldine Brennan) will win conference places worth pound;70 each (travel and accommodation not included) on October 7 (evening) and 8 (all day) in Swansea. Send entries (marked "ARW Competition" and giving contact details) to the email address below or on a postcard to: ARW Competition, The Dylan Thomas Literature Centre, Somerset Place, Swansea, SA11RR, by May 31. For more details about the conference, and the Swansea Wordplay Festival Tel: 01792 463980Email: Dylan.Thomas.
