Ghost Stories – we've all heard them and we've all been scared by them at one time or another. They can be terribly scary or simply funny, but either way they have been an attention-grabbing form of storytelling for centuries and leave people wondering whether what they've heard is fact or fiction!

The Young Writers Ghost Stories competition is open to anybody under 18 years old. Whether you've written a spine-chilling tale packed full of suspense, or a ghostly story that's actually quite funny, they'd love to read it!

Successful stories will be published in a book alongside other spooky tales from budding storytellers!  It is an ongoing competition, so there is no closing date. Once Young Writers  have enough entries to edit a book we will contact the successful writers.  Why not check out their website and have a go?

The Phantom Lollipop Man!

Review to follow (busy week!) but, as you can see, I adored this hence its position as the March Book of the Month!  



Igniting Writing is a creative writing club hosted at Wokingham Library and completely free to attend. The club provides a fun, relaxed atmosphere where 11-18 year-olds can develop their storytelling and writing skills. Writing can be a bit of a solitary activity, so this provides a great opportunity for teens to come together and write as a group, share their imaginative story ideas with others and build friendships with other young aspiring writers. Sessions are held on Saturday mornings, 10:30am to 12noon, and focus on a different aspect of writing every week, from creating characters and settings to exploring genres like sci-fi, fantasy and beyond. Roughly once a month Igniting Writing also hosts 'guest speaker' sessions, where local authors, poets, journalists and other people experienced in the world of writing come and share their knowledge and advice – it's a chance to get the inside scoop from the pros!
