Multi media creative competition
Budleigh Salterton Literary Festival is challenging children to get creative during the lockdown period and submit their work to the Festival’s online gallery.The theme is ‘Loving My World’ and the Festival team are inviting young people aged up to 18 years of age to submit poems, stories, pictures and photographs for the virtual gallery.
Annie Ashworth, Budleigh Salterton Literary Festival Artistic Director, said:
“An important part of the Festival’s work is to nurture and grow a love of words and creativity which is particularly important whilst schools are closed.
For the theme ‘Loving My World’, we want them to look to the world around them for inspiration, whether it’s as close as their back garden to places across the globe. We want to know what everyone loves about the world, and to encourage them to be creative and let their imaginations take off with words or pictures.”
The initiative is open to young people aged three to 18 from anywhere in the UK and may include poems up to 300 words, stories up to 700 words, original photographs or pictures in any medium.
Work can be uploaded as to the Budleigh Salterton Literary Festival website where you can discover more about the festival.
