Do you have a story to tell? Are you a writer or do you draw pictures? The Dulcie Stone Writers Competition is open to people with intellectual disability. It is designed to showcase the voices of people with intellectual disability and recognises the lifetime contribution of Dulcie Stone to services for people with intellectual disability and writing. 

The theme for the 2020 competition is: A Good Life. Are We There Yet?

What does it really mean to live the good life? Now is the chance to tell your story about what life really means to you.

Works can be of any length up to a maximum of 1,000 words or a storyboard of up to 3 x A4 pages of drawings. A storyboard is a number of squares on one page with pictures or drawings that tell a story.
