WICKED Young Writers Awards

WICKED Young Writers Awards

If you're under 25 years, and LOVE writing, the Wicked Young Writers Awards - created by the producers of the musical, WICKED - are looking for stories of up to 750 words from you!

Your stories can be about anything you would like to write.

There is also a non-fiction award, For Good, for 15-25 year olds who want to write essays or articles that celebrate the positive impact that people can have on each other, their community and the world we live in.

The deadline for sending your story or non-fiction writing to the awards is Monday 2nd March 2020.

The Wicked Young Writer Awards was established by the musical WICKED to inspire young people to encourage creativity and excellence in writing, and to help develop writing talent in young people from all backgrounds and areas of the UK. This year is its tenth anniversary.

Each year, the winners from the 120 finalists are announced at a special prize giving event at the Apollo Victoria Theatre.

The event is attended by the award judges, including head judge Cressida Cowell, the WICKED cast and a range of special guests. There are special performances, Q&As and rehearsed readings of the winning entries, performed by WICKED's principals.

All finalists also receive a printed copy of their entry as part of the annual Wicked Young Writer Awards Anthology.
