Children’s food writing competition Write It, is back!

Pink Lady apples and the Guild of Food Writers are on the hunt for the country’s best aspiring young food writers with its Write It competition.

Now open for entries, the competition encourages children from three age groups (10 and under, 11-14 and 15-18) to submit a piece of writing inspired by food, using the theme ‘Food for Sharing’.

Write It was established in 2008 and has seen prestigious names from the Guild’s membership judge entries from more than 1,200 aspiring food writers. This year’s judges include bestselling cook book author, celebrity MasterChef winner, actress and presenter Lisa Faulkner; Karen Barnes, editor of award-winning delicious magazine; award-winning documentary maker, TV presenter and author Stefan Gates; TV producer, cookery book writer and Guild member Kalpna Woolf and Sherry Ashworth, award-winning author of children’s and young adult literature.

Angela Clutton and Genevieve Taylor, co-chairs of the Guild of Food Writers commented: “Food can bring people together in amazing and unexpected ways. From sharing cake at a birthday party, to offering someone in need something to eat, food acts as a universal language. Members of the Guild have shared many meals and stories together over the years and we’re excited for the next generation of talented, creative minds to share their experiences of food with us through the written word. The Write It competition is growing year on year and we’re proud to be working with Pink Lady to make it even bigger this year.”

The closing date for entries is 30th April. To enter, visit pinkladyapples.co.uk/competitions/write-it-2019.
