To support aspiring young writers beginning to work on their pieces, we have created the below resources for use individually or in groups. 

The Queen's Commonwealth Essay Competition encourages entries from all young people across the Commonwealth, regardless of background, location or education level. Entries can be written in any form of creative writing, such as poems, speeches, stories or essays. 

Here you can find promotional posters and flyers to display in classrooms, libraries and noticeboards alongside a supporting presentation and lesson plan to help teachers, parents and carers to explain the Competition and encourage children to start writing. 

Entries are now being accepted until the 30 June 2021.
