Dickens on The Strand Short Story Contest

Could you be the next Dickens? This year’s festival will give you the chance to ride in a carriage with a Dickens descendant if your story is the winning selection! Lucinda Dickens Hawksley will personally select two stories, one from a 7-9 age range and one from a 10-12 range, for the winner to accompany them as their special guest during a Dickens parade.

Stories are limited to 100 words and can be on one of three topics. Youth submitting a story will receive a complimentary admission to Dickens on The Strand! Submit your short story below!
