At Stonewall, they are inspired by how passionate Britain’s young people can be about a world free of homophobia, biphobia and transphobia. I’m sure you all know young people who have their own vision of how to make the world a better place.
Stonewall want to give young people a chance to share those visions with the world. So they have launched their first ever Young Writers’ competition, and they woukd love for you to encourage young people from your local authority to get involved.
They have produced a launch video to help you –it is available on youtube (click here).
Anyone aged 14-17 can enter by submitting either a short story or poem on the theme of ‘LGBT equality: changing hearts and minds’. As well as prizes for the winners and runners up, the winning short story and poem will be published on the Guardian Children’s books website.
Closing date for entries is Friday 22 May, so there’s still lots of time to get started!
You can find out more details on how to enter at www.stonewall.org.uk/youngwriters.
