A blogger from America, Noname Porter-McShirley, read my post – Write4Fun – and commented that she also runs a story writing competition for kids. Entries close 31 December 2012. You can have a look at the details here.
This is what she said:
“I’ve just opened Rifll Publishing’s Kid’s Writing Challenge (contest) to ALL English-speaking kids aged 5-13 (rather than just US citizens).
This is an exciting opportunity which can help occupy kids while they wait for Christmas, and also benefit them in deeper ways.
Several First Place winners will be offered contracts to have their entries published in a paperback anthology of writing by kids and for kids.
All other entries will receive Second Place, and receive the option of being posted on a special page of Rifll Publishing’s website.
Please share the news on your blog. I hope lots of kids get the word and have fun participating in this FREE contest with NO losers :-)”
Sounds like fun. Miss 6 has been busy scribing away – think her story may involve fairies!!
Ps Do you like the snow falling down my page? I thought I’d add a little Christmas spirit to my blog – cute – even though it was 35 degrees here yesterday!
