Remix, reboot, be inspired!

Waterstones Children’s Laureate 2013-2015 Malorie Blackman invites you to take part in Project Remix – a competition to find the UK’s best young writers and creatives!

Take inspiration from your favourite writers to make your own creative work in response to their books and stories. Write a fanfic, design an alternative cover, reboot their story for your own spin-off comic strip, or even write a piece of original music inspired by their work.

UK residents aged 13-19 years can enter the competition and Malorie herself will be choosing her favourite entries in each category to win some very special prizes – including the chance to join Malorie and friends at the Project Remix award ceremony in London in spring 2015.

Taking part is easy – here’s what you need to do:

  • Check out the books, stories, poems and graphic novels on the Project Remix list, and choose your favourite to act as a starting point for your entry
  • Create your entry in one of the five competition categories – creative writing; comic strip; book cover design; book trailer; or music
  • Take a look at the  Project Remix resources – including tips from Malorie plus writers, artists, filmmakers, designers, filmmakers, designers and musicians to help you create your entry, plus guidance for writing fanfiction

  • The entry deadline is 23 February 2015
  • All entrants must be UK residents aged between 13-19 at the time of the competition deadline
  • Entries must be in English and your own work
