Event Details

This annual award is given to the best story (of no more than 1,500 words) written by an adult for children aged 7–11.

We are looking for stories that will inspire, delight and move our young readers. The winning story will appear in the winter issue of The Caterpillar.

Anyone can enter, as long as you are over 16 and your story is previously unpublished.

The author of the winning story will receive €1,000.

This year, we’re very happy to announce a *second prize* of a week’s retreat at the marvellous Tyrone Guthrie Centre in Co. Monaghan, Ireland.
