Ipswich Children’s Book Group with Beverley Birch
Calling all budding young writers!
Ipswich Children’s Book Group is delighted to announce a Suffolk-wide writing competition
with some wonderful prizes to be won for both young people and the school they attend.
The competition – A Special Place …
– is to celebrate the paperback publication of Beverley Birch’s acclaimed novel Song Beneath the Tides. Beverley, an experienced and highly regarded author and editor, has used her experiences of a childhood in Africa to create an evocative and resonant sense of place throughout the book.
Young people are invited to think about their special place and transport readers there.
Full details, including the prizes on offer, can be found by clicking on the poster (opens pdf)
Please note the closing date is Friday 5 November.
Here is a short video of Beverley talking about the competition
with suggestions and ideas to inspire young writers.
More information about Beverley’s book Song Beneath The Tides
can be seen in the video or view on the the publisher’s Guppy Aquarium channel:
As the competition is open to all young people aged 8 and over who attend a Suffolk school,
do please pass the details on to anyone you know who might be interested.
We look forward to receiving and reading all entries.
Ipswich Children’s Book Group.
