Write StuffAuthor Barbara Taylor Bradford has launched a short story writing competition, The Write Stuff, for girls aged 11-13, 14-16 and 17-18 years in partnership with The Sunday Times.

The Write Stuff competition is open to girls who live in the UK. Barbara Taylor Bradford said, "I feel it's critical to reach out to girls and young women who want to share a story they have created and inspire a new generation of female writers and readers."

To enter the competition, girls must write a fictional story of no more than 1,000 words with a central theme of 'friendship'. The best entries will be featured in an ebook by HarperCollins and published on the Sunday Times website, and the writers will also receive a story-writing masterclass. The three overall category winners will also each receive a box of books donated by HarperCollins.
