MIROnline is opening its doors to young authors from the UK. A team of enthusiastic students fromTreasure House School will be taking over the website during the month of August publishing stories by young authors like themselves.

he deadline for submissions is 3 pm on 31st August.

You may submit 1 piece of fiction of up to 1000 word on the theme of Nature. You can interpret this theme any way you like and may wish to write about…

  • Animal nature
  • Human nature
  • The natural world
  • The difference between natural and unnatural
  • Any other interpretation!

You must live in the UK and be aged between 12 and 19 to enter.

You may submit something you have written before, either for school or for yourself, or it can be a completely new piece.

Please submit files in Word document format (.doc / .docx)

All the work submitted will be read and selected by a team of youth volunteers, who will make final decisions and copy edit the work that appears. We want the MIROnline Youth Takeover to showcase excellent polished writing by up and coming young authors and to give them an experience in the publishing world.
