Are you under 12? Do you like writing your own stories? Or are you a budding artist? Alphabet Soup magazine is currently accepting entries for two competitions:
1. WINTER 2009 WRITING COMPETITION entries close 3 JULY 2009
Win a $20 book voucher! Write a SHORT STORY up to 350 words (shorter is fine). Stories must include this line: ‘The paper aeroplane was gone!’
Please remember to include a COMPETITION ENTRY FORM for each entry. This may be printed from the Alphabet Soup website, photocopied, or contact us to have one emailed or posted to you.
2. DESIGN-A-COVER COMPETITION entries close 16 SEPTEMBER 2009
See your artwork on the cover of our summer 2009 issue (and win a pack of quality colour pencils too)!
Using any materials you like, design a cover for our summer issue. You may enter as many times as you wish but each entry must have a separate COMPETITION ENTRY FORM. This may be printed from the website, photocopied, or contact us to have one emailed or posted to you.
See the ‘competitions’ page of the Alphabet Soup website for the rules and conditions, and to print an entry form.

Both competitions sound great. I love that you are encouraging young writers as well as young artists!
