The Dublin Book Festival has launched a new writing competition for young writers aged between 12 and 14. The teenagers are being asked to write and submit a story on any theme - scary, funny, sad or whatever you like - between 500 and 1000 words in length for the chance to win a place on a creative writing workshop with Roddy Doyle. The story must be submitted by the 11th of February 2011 and judges will pick eight winners to attend the workshop on the 26th of February at the Fighting Words Centre, Dublin.
