It’s here! The animal action writing competition, Write On!, is back!

Could you be the next Jacqueline Wilson or J K Rowling? Is your head bursting with brilliant story ideas? Then this is the competition for you! You could win a Dell laptop, signed books and appear in animal action!

Your story

You can write about anything you like, as long as your story or poem involves an animal superhero. What happens next is up to you! But whatever it is, your animal should have a great adventure.
