Coram Voice is running their annual creative writing competition, Voices, for children in care and young care leavers. The competition is a great platform to amplify your voices through writing and being heard in a creative and expressive way. Last year, two competition runner up’s were presented to the Queen and had the opportunity to read their pieces out loud at the event.

This year’s theme for the competition is ‘Growing Up’ and you are invited to write any piece under 500 words for the chance to win up to £100 in shopping vouchers. There are four categories to the competition: primary school, lower secondary, upper secondary and care leavers. If you are shortlisted, you will be invited to an awards ceremony and have your writing published in a book to showcase your talent and achievements.

Entries can be in any form such as a short story, poem rap or song and should be submitted before 10th February 2019. If you are in care or a care leaver and under 25, make sure to enter for the chance to have your voice heard!
