School Girl's Amnesty Prize

You can’t jail minds

A poem inscribed on a piece of wrapping paper for embroidery thread has won its author a prize in Amnesty International’s 'You Can’t Jail Minds' competition.

The competition is aimed at school children and sets a sobering challenge. They are required to imagine they are imprisoned and denied the right to a fair trial, then express their feelings in the form of a poem – but without the use of pen and paper. Instead, they have to find alternative methods of recording their poetic outbursts.

Talk About A Trek

No, it’s not for that kind of Trekkie

The art of oral story telling is to feature in a series of downloads from website Author Trek. Spoken word artists are invited to submit their works for possible inclusion on the site.


Fifty quid for some wilde text

A monthly writing competition is not for the verbose, or the clumsy of the thumb, for the challenge is to tap out a story in 300 characters or less – and that includes the spaces.
