A WRITING competition for children is being organised to coincide with the Thame Literary Festival.

The title is Make Us Laugh and the winners will receive tickets to meet famous children’s authors.

Children older than five years are invited to write an amusing poem of a maximum of 10 lines.

Luise Pattinson, from The Book House, said: “We wanted to celebrate the fantastic children’s authors who are coming to the Thame Arts and Literature Festival this year.

“We will be displaying our favourite entries in the shop.”
