Writing Competitions for Kids

Comps for kids � Soup Blog

This is a great resource – if you are a kid writer, or if you know one, take a look – not just for the list of competitions, but also for the great tips on entering writing competitions in general.

(It’s a great magazine and blog too!)

Good luck!
