Dear Teachers and Lovers of English language,

We are pleased to invite you and your students to our
ORIGINAL ENGLISH PROSE AND POETRY COMPETITION –
creative writing in English language.

Our Schools of C.S.Lewis are happy to organize this international competition 14th year and offer to students the chance to express themselves in a creative way of writing.
We would like to share a great experience of joining a group of young authors and give them a professional feedback from the Judge Committee. Three chosen pieces in each category will be printed in a very original brochure.

This Annual we would like to invite YOU to write a poem or a story that will go with the theme: LEAVING THE DOOR OPEN.

We would appreciate some volunteers from the teachers who could assist with evaluation of the submissions. Please, find an extra time and read amazing masterpieces!

We look forward to receive and read students works.
Many thanks for all your efforts!
