Calling all budding young writers! Get your pens ready as this year’s National Young Writers’ Award is set to return – bigger and better than ever before.  

The fifth instalment will be judged by best-selling author, Cressida Cowell, writer of the world famous How To Train Your Dragon series, which inspired the hugely successful DreamWorks movie. 

Organised by tuition provider Explore Learning, this creative and free competition encourages children aged five to 14 to write a 500 word short story on this year’s theme – “Around the World”.  

Entries will be open on Monday 15th April and close on Monday 3rd June.  The lucky winner will be presented with their prize of a trip to Disneyland Paris for their whole family – and £500 worth of books for their school by Cressida Cowell in June.

Gender transition is a time period in which a person begins to live according to their gender identity distinctive to their birth sex. The transition can take serious defiance from society. Many transgender people risk social stigma, discrimination, and harassment when they tell other people who they really are.
