University Library Young Writers’ Award Digital Archive


books on shelf

The Cambridge University Library has created a unique virtual treasure trove of books, manuscripts and objects to provide a spark of inspiration for writers considering entering the BBC Young Writers’ Award with First Story and Cambridge University. The items in the inspiration gallery cover a variety of times, places, authors and subjects. Some are objects which can be seen in 3D; others are a single image. Several of the books and manuscripts have been digitised in the Cambridge Digital Library and students will be able to read these from cover to cover.
