Calling all budding writers .

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!

Inkhead runs creative-writing workshops for children aged seven to 14 to encourage them to create fiction through writing exercises. Find out more at www.inkhead.co.uk.
