2023/24 Competition Now Closed!

Entry is now closed for The Canterbury Tales Writing Competition 2023/24: Being Part of a Group.

We’ve had another fantastic response and would like to thank all the students who have submitted entries. We cannot wait to read your poems and stories.

We would also like to thank all the parents, guardians, teachers, teaching assistants, librarians, and schools who have supported the competition. We are really grateful for your support and enthusiasm.

We read every entry carefully, and therefore the judging process is a lengthy one. When we have chosen our winners we will contact them via their schools or, in the event of home schooled students, via their parents or guardians. We will then make an announcement on our website. We hope to be able to do this in the summer term.

Thank you once again, and do monitor our website for announcements concerning our next writing competition.
