Now in its third year, Story House is the creative writing competition aimed at school children in the Dorchester area aged five to twelve years, devised to inspire creativity, imagination and passion for the written word.
This year’s theme, chosen by Lord Julian Fellowes, is for the story to be based in (or at) a museum. The first line of the story should read:
The children stared up at the tower, then looked at the open door.
Entries to the competition have now closed and the stories are in the second round of judging. We are delighted to welcome back Lord Julian Fellowes, Lady Emma Fellowes and David Solomons as final judges and they will be joining us at the award ceremony at Shire Hall Historic Courthouse Museum.
