Walking With The Wounded:

“Everyone has a story to tell and at Walking With The Wounded (WWTW) we tell the stories of our service men and women who have been injured whilst carrying out their duties, we also tell the stories of those who support us and their endeavours.

Our stories cover a range of genres from tragedy to triumph, through adventure and adversity to love and loyalty.

Education is at the heart of the work of WWTW and we place great importance upon the difference it can make to lives.

We have joined forces with best-selling author Andy McNab to run our first WWTW Story Writing Challenge.

Andy McNab has written the start of a new story, we would like you to complete this story in no more than 1000 words. We will be shortlisting the entries and Andy McNab will help us decide the winners.

The story can be in any genre that you like. We will be looking for a story that shows:

  • Good imagination and creativity
  • Structure: the story develops and reaches a conclusion
  • Imaginative language: powerful verbs, adjectives etc
  • Creates atmosphere through use of language and settings
  • Develops the characters

These stories may be either handwritten or word processed.

The winning entry will receive a visit from Andy McNab to their school, signed copies of Andy McNab’s books and some WWTW goodies.

Three runners up will receive Andy McNab books and WWTW goodies.”
