Writing Competition


Hello and welcome to the launch of our very first
competition here at Delve into Dystopia. This competition is open to 11-16 year
olds living in the UK, and is a must for all lovers of UK dystopian novels and
their authors.

To be in with the chance of winning a huge book bundle
prize including signed books from Patrick Ness, Malorie Blackman, Samantha
Shannon, Gemma Malley, Claire Merle and loads more UK based dystopian authors,
you must write the opening 300 words of your very own dystopian novel. You can
view the prize list here, and the full terms and conditions here.

Your piece must
be dystopian, however how you interpret this is up to you – it could have
elements of post apocalypse, sci fi, fantasy and anything else you can think
of. How you write this is up to you; you could write it in any tense, any
narrative, and from any protagonist’s view, just tell the story you want to

The event will be lasting for two months, ending on 1st
February, and will run over the Christmas holidays, meaning you have lots of
time to get writing. Once the event ends, Delve into Dystopia will shortlist
the submitted entries down to ten before sending them over to author Claire
Merle who will decide on the final winners. Please send your entries via email
for a chance to win the amazing book bundle prize.

Terms and conditions and the list of prizes will be up on the blog over the next few days. Watch this space…
