Hidden talents

Do you have a hidden creative talent that’s just bursting to be recognised? Then why not enter this fantastic local competition?

Atelier East’s Young Curators’ Forum are putting together a booklet of creative work to celebrate the Wisbech and Fenland Museum, and woukd like to hear from you.

We’d like your short stories, poems and drawings inspired by the collections on display in the museum. It’s a great opportunity to see your work in print, and there are so many amazing objects to spark your imagination. You could write a poem about the mummified Egyptian hand and its mysterious origins, tell the story of a Roman sword and the centurion who carried it into battle, or even paint a picture of the shark’s jaws, open wide and ready to snap.

All the winning entries will be published in a special limited edition booklet, and the competition is open to artists and writers of all ages. So, whether you’re a budding Piccaso, or an amateur JK Rowling, we’d love to hear from you.

The project has been made possible with the support of local arts organisation Atelier East and funding from the Cambridgeshire based charity, Young Lives.

If you’d like to enter the competition, send your submission to info@karen-harvey.co.uk with your name, contact telephone number, and the name of the museum artefact that inspired you. Alternatively, you can pick up an entry form from the Wisbech and Fenland Museum.

The closing date for submissions is Friday 31st May 2013.
