Move with Words for Cloudaloud  

Write a story or poem about moving your body

To celebrate National Writing Day and Audiobook Month, Cloudaloud wants you to ‘Move with Words’ and write a story or poem about moving your body. 

All you have to do is write an original story or poem, using no more than 250 words, which will inspire everyone to get up and move.  

The story could be about PE, a particular sport you love, running, walking, dancing, stretching, swimming, bungee-jumping – anything! Use your imagination and think about what makes you move, then get writing! 

We’ll be announcing our esteemed panel of judges next week. The judges will pick two winners for each age category, and they will consider any story that inspires others move with words.

The winning stories or poems will be recorded by Cloudaloud with a professional narrator in a recording studio and featured on the Cloudaloud app!  

The writers of the winning stories will also receive a one-year subscription to Cloudaloud Audiobooks, as well as some amazing “designed for kids only” POGS headphones. So, what are you waiting for? 

The competition is open to all children aged 5 to 11 and you must enter one of the age categories based on your age at the time of entry.  

The categories are: 

  • Age 5-7 
  • Age 8-11 

Each person can submit one entry only (no joint entries allowed), If more than one entry is received from an entrant, we will accept the first entry received and disregard the others. The text must be in English. Entries from the UK only.
