The National Young Writers’ Awards is set to return with a bang as world renowned best-selling children’s author David Walliams has been named judge for 2018!  The competition, organised by tuition provider, Explore Learning, has been running for ten years and has inspired hundreds of thousands of children across the UK to put pen to paper and give writing a try. 



‘Stars of comedy and film support search for best young comedy writer.’ Richard Curtis, Sir Lenny Henry, Miranda Hart, Sara Pascoe, and David Walliams give their backing to a new BBC competition for children aged 6 to 12. 

BBC Learning today launched a brand new competition in association with Comic Relief, Blue Peter and the National Literacy Trust to encourage children to have a giggle in the classroom and to get involved with Red Nose Day 2017.
