    It has been announced that ‘Voices’, Coram Voice’s creative writing competition for children in care and young care leavers, will return for the fourth year running. Hopefully, the competition will inspire more amazing writing by young people expressing themselves in new and inventive ways, and Coram Voice looks forward to building on the success of the 2018 competition which saw a huge increase in the number of children and young people entering.

    The theme for this year is ‘Growing up’ and entries can be any form of creative writing with a 500-word limit. This includes poems, raps, song lyrics and short stories. There are four age categories to enter: primary school, lower secondary (age 11–14), upper secondary (age 15–18) and care leavers.

    The competition closes for entries on 10 February 2019 and the finalists will be invited to a special awards ceremony taking place in April. There has been an excellent response from prospective competition judges and their names will be announced shortly.

    Please help to promote this wonderful opportunity for young people by sharing it across your networks and on social media using @CoramVoice and #Voices2019. Or could you volunteer your time to help Coram Voice shortlist the entries, or help with sourcing goody bag or prize donations? To get involved or to find out more, please email communications@coram.org.uk.
