Calling young authors! Calling young artists! Calling young composers! 

Let creative children and teens Shine!

Young writer Elijah Watmough - not yet published but give him time!

I'm on the lookout for youngsters aged 7 – 17

who can:

Write a compelling poem

called ‘Taking the Plunge’ or ‘Beating the Bullies

- or on some other really powerful topic.

Join a team of young composers

turning the liveliest poems into songs!

Design a piece of artwork for one of the songs

or to go on my anti-bullying page.

Submit (via parent or teacher) a longer work in prose

for free advice and evaluation.

If it's a novel of great promise I might offer terms for a detailed critique.

This is a chance to get that spark of talent recognised!

Parents and teachers can email work to [email protected] 

or use the form below to ask for a postal address.

If sending work, include the youngster's name and age, country or UK county of residence and say whether you're their parent or teacher.

All enquiries are welcome!

Younger children sometimes display their talent in illustrated letters.

The artist Jeff Stahler has kindly let me use this cartoon - a great celebration of inborn talent and independence!
