This year’s challenge is all about connection: ‘As we move towards the reopening of the country, join First Story and connect through creative writing. We’re challenging writers to #FilltheBox with a piece of creative writing – a poem, a letter, a story – using the theme of connection. Whether it’s in 280 Twitter characters or on a post-it sized piece of paper, there’s a space to write for everyone.’ Want to give it a go? Check out the #fillthebox challenge.
