The deadline for entries from young writers for the Vixen 101-Pocklington Post Telling Tales short story competition is being extended to give them a chance to enter during the summer holidays.

The competition, which closed for adults this week (July 15th), invites East Yorkshire people to write up to 1,000 words on any subject. It was launched to celebrate the programme, Telling Tales, on Vixen 101. The prize fund has also been boosted to attract young writers with Margaret’s DIY of Holme Upon Spalding Moor adding £15 in vouchers to the £15 already pledged by Burnby Hall Gardens. This is in addition to the winning entry being broadcast on Vixen 101, online and being published in the Pocklington Post.

Presenter Julie Barker says: “Margaret Hobson’s gesture is very welcome and I hope the extra prize as well as an extended deadline will encourage more young writers to start scribbling or typing. There are plenty of writers out there and we have come across so many as part of Telling Tales. I can understand that the under-16 age group will have been pre-occupied by exams this summer, so the competition is now a holiday challenge.”

Please send your entries to together with full contact details by 31st August 2014.

Meanwhile, thank you for those who have entered the adult category. We are sifting through the many stories.
