This year marks 90 years since the publication of Virginia Woolf’s A Room of One’s Own, and to celebrate this, the RSL have launched a series of projects asking what writers need to work today.
The A Room of My Own competition is open for 14- to 18-year-olds to write an essay with what they think they need to ensure their creative futures in literature.
Their essays might explore:
• what they think a writer needs to work;
• how they imagine their future as a writer; or
• how writing from the past can influence new writing now.
The winner will receive National Book Tokens for themselves and for their school library, and a selection of essays will also be published online on the RSL website.
The deadline is Thursday 31 October 2019.
Full T&Cs are available to view on the RSL website here.
