About the Event

Greg James, Explore Learning Writers’ Awards 2020 judge, has shared his pearls of writing wisdom. Not only is he a Radio DJ, but he’s also known for co-writing the book series Kid Normal!

Explore Learning is inviting children across the UK aged 4-14 to pen a 500-word story around the theme of ‘Hidden Talents’.  Everybody has a talent, anyone can be a writer. 

Competition Opens – 28th September 2020
Deadline to enter – 28th October 2020

For the past twelve years, Explore Learning has been inspiring children to write, from the young authors in the making to those a little more reluctant. We’re inviting children across the UK aged 4-14 to pen a 500-word story. 

Greg James’ writing wisdom tips are ready to be shared with all of you budding authors out there. He’s the perfect judge for this year’s competition theme ‘Hidden Talents’ as he champions the idea of being yourself, the ‘weirder’ the better, and having fun whilst you do it! Why have we chosen this theme? Well, we see it as an opportunity to bring out some positives from lockdown. What moments of greatness did you have? What secret talents did you uncover? We want to cheerleader the fact that anybody could be sat on an amazing ability, they just perhaps haven’t uncovered it as of yet!
