Children’s Writing Competition 2019

Established in 2017, our annual children’s writing competition (run in collaboration with Castle Loch Community Trust) has now encouraged hundreds of young people age 5-13 to explore the beauty of Castle Loch and to have a go at writing a story inspired by the surroundings.

Each year, it is a huge honour for Lockerbie Writers to judge the entries and attend the prize-giving ceremonies to hand out prizes for the best stories – including book tokens, stationery, and our very special trophy which is presented each year to our favourite overall story.

The competition has now concluded for 2019, but please check back in spring/summer 2020.
