The Leeds Castle Big Story Writing Challenge

by | Feb 12, 2020 | Literacy, News

Winning Stories of both categories to be published on Fonetti.

Fonetti are proud Sponsors in the Leeds Castle’s Big Story Writing Challenge! Here at Fonetti, we champion independent art and writing from creators of all ages. We want to not only aid children’s literacy skills, but to encourage creativity, too!

That’s we are proud to work alongside our Brand Ambassador Clare Balding to support The Leeds Castle Big Story Writing Challenge.

…This year, the competition’s theme is One Golden Day, inspired by… …an event that took place 500 years ago in 1520 when Henry VIII stayed at Leeds Castle with 5,000 of his courtiers.

He was on his way to meet the King of France for a massive jamboree that has since become known as ‘The Field of Cloth of Gold’. Children aged between 5 – 13 are invited to send in their most imaginative work to be in with a chance of winning some pretty ace prizes (if we do say so ourselves).

We will be offering the 2 lucky winners the chance to see their book fully illustrated and published on Fonetti. Our Fonetti authors can’t begin to describe the magical feeling of seeing their words come to life.

So we are thrilled to be able to offer your young, budding authors this opportunity! And it’s not just this incredible prize, either! Winners will also receive:

  • A stay at Knight’s Glamping
  • Tickets to the Fireworks Spectacular 2020
  • Collection of Clare Balding’s children’s books
  • Hamper of fun prizes.
