Writing for children: Healthy competition

Give your children’s book an extra publicity push by organising a contest related to its content, suggests children’s author Amy Sparkes

When your children’s book is just published, it’s important to invest some time and energy into promoting it. Running a competition is a brilliant way of doing this. It raises the profile of the book, engages the children, and can be great fun along the way.

There are various ways to run a competition and it largely depends on the nature of your book and the age range it’s aimed at. If at all possible, tailor the competition to reflect the theme of your story. This helps it to feel fresh, links it more closely to your book and hopefully makes the experience more memorable to those taking part.
