Followingthe hugely successful Eason Spelling Bee, which saw over 1000 primary schools take part in Eason’s national spelling competition, they are delighted to launch a new creative writing competition aimed at secondary school students.

The competition is open to all 2nd level students in the Republic of Ireland, with entrants divided into two groups:

Junior cycle – 1st Year to Junior Cert
Senior cycle – Transition Year to Leaving Cert

Entrants can write on any subject matter with an agreed maximum word count of 1000 for Junior cycle entrants and 2000 words for Senior cycle.

A shortlist of all entrants will be finalised by a panel of book experts in January with the best stories being published online on easonedition.com and put forward for a public vote. Their panel of book experts will judge this shortlist and their scoring combined with the public vote will determine one overall winner each for Junior cycle and Senior cycle. The winning stories from the combined public and judging panel vote will then be published by Kobo as an e-Book.

There are some great prizes to be won as follows:
