The Museum of Childhood and Marsh’s Library are again teaming up to celebrate young writers with aspirations to become the next James Joyce in a short storywriting competition.

This year the theme is compassion and empathy and focuses on the idea of Leopold Bloom’s empathy with animals in Joyce’s Ullysses.

The challenge is to write a short story from the perspective of an animal.  An animal the writer knows or has had an encounter with.

Closing date: 1st June 2023
