1,200 students from over 50 countries worldwide put their own modern twist on a classic tale in an international writing competition. Husnur Hajigizi won in the Key Stage 2 category.

Twist on a Tale competition

Launched on International Literacy Day (Sunday 8 September 2019), the Pearson My Twist on a Tale writing competition encouraged four to 16-year-olds to tear up the rule book and give their own 21st Century take on classic tales and regional folk stories, reflecting the diverse and modern-day world within which they live.

Over 1200 students from 50 countries around the world entered the competition.

Eight fantastic winning stories were selected by the judges for their exceptional writing, creativity and for their representation of a modern day, diverse world reflecting the writer’s own personality, location, heritage, interests or experiences. 

Each of the winners’ stories have been collated into a collection of short stories for all to read. Find out more about Pearson’s My Twist on a Tale and download a copy of the book now.
