We are really excited to announce that in February we are going to be holding a writing competition. This will be run in partnership with My Dog Sighs and will be open to everyone to enter. You will be asked to write a short story based on one of his tin can men, everything else is completely open to your own interpretation.
We can’t say too much about the exact details as they are currently being confirmed, however we can tell you that the categories will be split into three different age groups, each with a different word limit.
• 13 years and under
• 14 years – 18 years
• 18 years and above
For the younger age groups we looking for teachers who would be whiling to lend a hand going through the entries or would maybe like to invite their school or class to be involved, maybe as part of a class project.
This competition will run from February until March with the winner for each category being announced early April. The three lucky winners will receive a copy of their story created by graphic designer Sam Barclay and personalised by My Dog himself.
If you or your school are interested in getting involved then drop me an email with your details to firstname.lastname@example.org.
