What is The Mighty Write Competition?

The Mighty Write is an opportunity for pupils aged 9-11 from around the world to get creative and write the most imaginative pieces they can.

This year's theme is 'If I ruled the world'. Challenge your class to write about one thing they would change if the world was in their hands. Let their imaginations run wild and believe anything is possible.

Who can enter?

The competition is open to pupils aged 9-11. Everyone in your class can have a go! You then select your favourite three pieces to be published on Pobble as your official class entries. 

To enter your winning entries, you will need to add the names of your three entrants to Pobble and add their work. As the writing is then made public we ask that you get consent from parents.

 

 

Supporting teaching resources

We've created a writing lesson full of ideas, prompts and supporting resources so you can run your own 'If I ruled the world' lesson. Access your free Mighty Write lesson for inspiration.
