The Lewis Carroll Society is launching a writing competition to commemorate 150 years of ‘Through the Looking-Glass’ and to celebrate the creativity of Lewis Carroll. The award is part of the bequest from Ellis S Hillman who was the first President of the Lewis Carroll Society in 1969.
The challenge is to write a ‘missing’ chapter for either Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland or for Through the Looking-Glass. The chapter can introduce new characters or re-use existing characters. It can create new scenarios or follow from an existing scenario.
The competition is free to enter and offers a prize of £100 in each of three different age groups (including adults).
The closing date is 3rd July 2021 which coincides with Alice’s Day in Oxford.
Full competition details can be found on the Lewis Carroll Society website.
So, scoot down the nearest rabbit hole, take tea with the Mad Hatter and let your imagination take flight!
