Local Short Story Competition

Young Doctor Who fans in the Northamptonshire area are urged to take part in a 200 word short story competition run by the local council.

Children between 7-12 are invited to take part, with prizes awarded for the best stories, with each completed entry displayed in libraries around Northamptonshire after the competition closes.

"This is a great way of getting talented young writers in the county to use their imaginations and come up with some great stories.

"There is a lot of interest in Doctor Who at the moment so hopefully there will be a lot of entries."

So says county councillor Andre Gonzalez de Savage.

Running from October 18th (when entry forms are available from local branch libraries) to the closing date of November 15th, the competition ties in with November’s National Year of Reading theme, focusing on books based on film or television.
