Awards for young writers and artists

Writers and artists in schools

We’re currently rescheduling our popular Writers and Artists in Schools programme to run from 25 September to 3 October 2020 and will be getting in touch with all schools that have signed up to this year’s programme with details of when your children will be able to attend. 

For primary schools, there’s an opportunity to send a group of children for a day of creativity through a writing and art workshop. For secondary schools, we’ll be offering a writing workshop to inspire a group of your students.


Children’s competitions

This year our Arts and Literature Awards for Young Writers and Artists 2020 received a fantastic 952 entries – brilliant poems, short stories and pieces of artwork from children and students living all over Cornwall. Congratulations to everyone who entered and to all the families, teachers and schools who supported the competition.

Judging is now complete
