The Orwell Youth Prize


The Orwell Youth Prize, one of my favourite prizes, is targeted at writers aged 14-18. Anyone in that age group is allowed to enter, but what I enjoy most about the OYP, as a writer, are the schools workshops which enable students to think about political writing, discuss Orwell’s work and develop their own ideas along specified themes. On several occasions, I’ve taken part in the OYP Celebration Day at Pembroke College, Oxford, which brings together talented young writers, their teachers and published authors and journalists.
