The popular My Twist On A Tale writing and creativity challenge has been given a sci-fi makeover for 2021 with the theme of Our Tomorrow.

Organised by Pearson, the competition invites children and young people aged four to 19-years-old to submit pieces of creative writing, video clips or other entries.

The theme of Our Tomorrow is encouraging entrants to explore and reflect on the wider world and issues including climate, inclusion, family, technology, or space exploration.

Suggested ways that pupils might enter include composing a personal letter to their 100-year-old self, writing a rap about what their town might look like in 20 years’ time, or re-imagining a classic tale with a sci-fi-style makeover. Entries can be fiction, non-fiction or poems, written entries, videos, or recordings.

Entries for this year’s competition will need to be submitted by 5pm on November 26. An expert judging panel will decide on the winning pieces.
