My Twist on a Tale is a new writing competition being launched by Pearson for September the 8th ( International Literacy Day). Whether children are in school, or at home, this is a great competition for them to take part in.



The following text has been taken from an email received by me this morning:


Register for My Twist on a Tale 2020
On International Literacy Day (Tuesday 8th September), we’ll be launching our My Twist on a Tale writing competition for it’s second year! This free competition, now open to 4-19 year olds across the UK, will encourage young people to let their imagination run wild as they write a story based on our new theme for 2020, Everyday Heroes.

Following an extraordinary year of disruption, we’ve decided to update our competition theme, to provide children with a positive outlet to highlight the extraordinary stories that have emerged throughout the year. We want children to have the opportunity to write their own tales of people who have made a difference to them.

Whether it’s a story about someone in their local community, a key worker making a difference, a family member or friend that inspires them or even a superhero from their imagination, we want children and young people to get creative and reflect their own personality, location and experiences in their tales. And who says the hero needs to be a human? It could be a story about a guide dog or even a cat that comes to save the day!

Please make sure you register now to get all the details sent to you in the coming weeks!

Best wishes,

The Pearson Literacy and English Team
