Following the success of  Coram’s ‘Voices’, the first national writing competition in 2016, Coram is opening the new competition..

The competition provides an opportunity for care-experienced young people to express their creative talents.

This year's theme is ‘New Beginnings’ . Young people are invited to draw inspiration from a change in their lives or opportunities they’ve experienced to try something new.

The competition has three age categories: primary school, secondary school and care leavers, with a special additional award for migrant children in care or care leavers.

 Entries, which can be submitted online here from 9 January 2017 until 21 February 2017

 Entries can be poems, short stories or newspaper articles, with a 500 word limit.

The entries for Voices 2017 will be judged by a panel of writers and journalists, with a special interest in, or personal experience of the care system.

Winners will be announced by the judges at an awards ceremony in London on 10 April 2017.
