gal-dem writing competition

WHAT WOULD YOU SAY TO YOUR FUTURE SELF?

Enter gal-dem's writing competition for a chance to have your writing featured on their website, and gal-dem will even visit one lucky winner's school!

This June, gal-dem published their debut book "I Will Not Be Erased": Our stories about growing up as people of colour. It's the book they wish had existed when they were growing up, and is here to remind every young person out there that they are not alone, and that their voice and experiences are important. In the book, gal-dem reflected on their years growing up and wrote letters to their younger selves, and now with they want to give you the opportunity to reflect too, but this time let's look to the future. What would you write to your future self? Where do you see yourself in 10, 20, 30 years' time? What do you want the world to be like? What do you wish for yourself and the people you love?

Tell us in no more than 500 words, and 3 lucky winners will have their letter published on gal-dem's website, receive a £50 Waterstones gift card, as well as a selection of great reads from us at Walker Books! One overall winner will even have the opportunity to host two of gal-dem's contributors at their school or college for a mentoring workshop all about writing for a living. We're excited to hear your voices!
