Writing Competition is Back at Conisbrough Library

Conisbrough Community Library's popular writing competition is back! With the support of DN12 live we will be offering the creative writing competition for all ages. All you have to do is write an original short story on a topic of your choice and summit it to the DN12 live team. If you need inspiration why don't you use the original drawing by Mick Daines of Jock and the Bean Tin to help you get ideas or use this image to start your story. The volunteers at the library will then be reading and judging the entries over the lockdown period for the winner to be announced on the reopening of Conisbrough Community Library. The closing date is subject to change so please keep up to date for more details on this on Conisbrough Community Library Facebook/Twitter accounts and on DN12 live. 

What you need to know:

Age ranges are Under 11 years, Under 16 years and over 17+ (Adult). You have a limit of 500 words for ages Under 11 years and Under 16 years and a 1000 words limit for the 17+ Adult. The story must be an original piece and we can not have any entries that have been published before in anyway. The writing competition is open to residents in the DN12 area and surrounding neighboring areas. Please provide your Name, Address, Contact number, Age and valid DMBC library membership (if you have one) with each entry. 


There will be a first prize for each age category of a £10 gift voucher such as WH Smiths or similar. Prizes are provided by Conisbrough Community Library.
