The Fairytale of Parkdean competition is for adventure stories by young writers aged up to 14
It invites entrants to write an eight-page children's book. The winner's story will be printed and sold for charity.
The competition is being run by holiday park operator Parkdean with support from the National Literacy Trust.
Entrants will base their stories around Parkdean's characters Sid the Seagull and Lizzie the Lizard. The winner will get a family holiday at Parkdean.
'Writing adventure stories will help a child develop their reading and writing skills in a creative and exciting way,' said National Literacy Trust head of partnerships Lisa Rootes. 'We would love to see as many parents as possible encourage their children to enter the competition and have fun exploring their imaginations.'
The Fairytale of Parkdean competition is open for entries until 7 November.
