The writing competition will be launched by Julie and Ian in Manchester tomorrow (15th March).

The title of the competition is "Difference" and 29 schools in Manchester and East Lancashire have been invited to take part.

Julie, you might know her better as "Hayley " in Coronation Street and Ian, who is one of the writers of Shameless and other dramas will launch the competition with some of their co-stars and friends.

The list of judges is just fantastic including Poet Simon Armitage, the writer of "Black Roses - The Killing of Sophie Lancaster" , that has just been on BBC Radio 4. Actors and writers of Corrie, Waterloo Road, Hollyoaks and Emmerdale will also join the judges list. We are also delighted to have on board Vicky Mclure of "This is England" fame and Itch the poet and singer with The King Blues.

Good luck to all who enter
