The Story Writing Competition is held annually by the Emirates Literature Foundation for school and university students. The inspiration for 2024 is ‘Beginnings’.
‘Beginnings’ are very important for books and stories. They set the scene for what is to come and hook the readers in. They invite readers to stay and read till the end – making ‘beginnings’ count is crucial for an author.
‘Beginnings’ are also very meaningful in life. We cannot start new life adventures unless we take that first step and begin!
This theme encourages you to explore any experience that you/your character(s) may have had with ‘beginnings’.
‘Beginnings’ are different for everyone, tell us what is yours?
Participants must be full-time students in schools, colleges and universities.
