CDAT Writing Competition 2021!
‘It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness…’
This is a quote from ‘A Tale of Two Cities’ by Charles Dickins but it seems very appropriate to use it at the start of a short piece of writing about lockdown.
We want you to write a short piece about lockdown. It can be fact or fiction. You can write about your experience or someone else’s.
What has been really good during lockdown?
Have you learned a new skill? Such as gardening/baking/walking your dog/sewing/playing an instrument/making something?
Who has been amazing during lockdown? Who has impressed you?
What has been your biggest challenge during lockdown?
Your challenge now is to write a reflection of life during lockdown. It can be totally factual, telling us how the experience has been for you.
If you want to be creative you could write a fictional piece, writing as your dog and what they think of lockdown.
You might want to write a creative reflection as though you are the Prime Minister dealing with lockdown for the whole country.
Start your writing with, ‘It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness…’
Try to write it use one sheet of A4 paper so about 200-400 words. If you would like to, you can present your ideas through a video or podcast instead.
Please send to firstname.lastname@example.org by the 12th of February
