Dear 2020, We need to talk...

A writing competition for young people aged 11-25 in Lewisham.

A message from the Dear 2020 Project Team:

Dear 2020, We need to talk…


Write Sparks presents the Dear 2020 Project; a writing competition for young people aged 11-25 in Lewisham. If you could speak to the year 2020, what would you say?


The Challenge


We challenge you to write a letter of no more than one side of A4 directly to the year 2020.


  • What are you thankful for?

  • What are you angry, or confused, about?

  • What questions would you like 2020 to answer?

  • Perhaps you’d like to offer it some advice?


Your letter can take any form- it can be fictional or based on your experiences, written from any perspective and can use prose or poetry. You can type or handwrite your letter and you are welcome to illustrate or decorate it.


Creative thinking is encouraged!


The competition is open to everyone aged 11-25 who lives, works or studies in Lewisham. Our website has all the details about how to enter, the full rules, our wonderful judges and the fantastic prizes.


There are three age groups: 11-13, 14-17 and 18-25.


The competition closes at 11:59pm on Friday 9th October 2020.
