For this year's Festival the National Literacy Trust and children's Author Mike Molloy have helped us to design an exciting, creative writing competition for children in years 4 to 6.

They have also provided some great prizes.

It's a fun competition and we'll be adding some special events to our programme that will make getting involved even more worthwhile.
