AS PENZANCE looks forward to regaining the world record for the most pirates in one place, why not enter a competition celebrating the event?

The organisers of the Penzance Litfest are running a 'Be A Write Pirate' competition in the run-up to the record attempt on Bank Holiday Monday, May 26.

Submissions, inspired by the theme of 'Pirates', may come in the form of a poem of up to 40 lines, a work of fiction or prose up to 400 words or a picture or drawing no larger than A4.

All entries must have e-mail, phone and address contact details on them and the entrant's age if under 16.

The winner of each of the six categories (three adult and three under-16) will receive a prize to enrich their writing or illustrating life.

There is a £2 entry fee (cheques should be made out to PLFA) and only one entry is allowed per person. Entries should be sent to 5 Regent Terrace, Penzance, Cornwall, TR18 4DW; mark the envelope 'Be A Write Pirate'.

All proceeds will contribute towards the running costs of the Penzance Litfest 2014, which runs from July 16 to 20.

The closing date for entries is March 1.
