The Monster Challenge

‘Stories are important. Stories can be more important than anything. If they carry the truth.’  Patrick Ness, A Monster Calls

Are you a young person with a passion for telling stories? Do you feel the itch to grab a notebook and pen to respond to the world around you? Or do you know a young person aged 10-25 who loves creative writing? 

To accompany the UK Tour, we are running The Monster Challenge, seeking short stories from young people aged 10-25, nationwide. The challenge is open to all - anyone who has a story to tell.

We are looking for the boldest, bravest and most creative short stories, so let your imaginations run wild! 

Stories submitted from each region across the tour will be selected and narrated by members of the cast, in a series of videos posted up on social.

For full details about the challenge and how to enter, simply download our Monster Challenge Pack here.  Pick up a pen and go. Run with it. Make trouble…

Submissions can be uploaded here. The deadline is Thursday 19 March.

Follow the hashtag #AMonsterChallenge for updates.

A Monster Calls will be on our stage Tuesday 24 - Saturday 28 March. For further information and to book tickets please click here.
