Imagine Fun writing competition

Arthouse celebrate their first ever National Children’s Creative Story Writing Competition

Arthouse have used the Imagine Fun collection as the basis to launch a national children’s story writing competition, opened to children aged 4-11 years designed to inspire and to encourage creative thinking. Children could enter the competition via their schools or independently, with winners receiving cash prizes to spend on creative materials.

Teaming up with award-winning children’s authors Harriet Goodwin and Linda Chapman, interior designer Sophie Conran; as well as being endorsed by much loved author Dame Jacqueline Wilson, the competition has been a huge success. Hundreds of entries have been received nationwide from counties ranging from Sussex, Herefordshire, Lancashire, Staffordshire and Cheshire.

The winning stories from the Arthouse Imagine Fun writing competition, combined with a selection of fantastic runners up, have been compiled into a beautifully illustrated hardback story book – ‘The Little Book of Imagination’ – For Children, by Children’.

This book will be available to purchase nationwide for £8.99, and all proceeds will go to the Rossendale Hospice based in Lancashire, of which Arthouse are proud patrons, supporting their valued work improving the quality of life for those with life-limiting illnesses.
