3rd Birthday Giveaway Day 1

It’s always fun to unwrap a few presents at a birthday party—and since we’re turning three we’ve decided to give away some notebooks and pens to celebrate. All writers need a notebook for jotting down interesting words, snippets of conversation or ideas for the next story or poem. We have one writer’s notebook and pen to giveaway each day for three days (starting today!).

Here’s today’s notebook and pen giveaway. One spiral-bound notebook and a blue pen.

Notebook giveaway Day 1
Win this notebook & pen and get writing!

If you’d like to enter today’s notebook-and-pen-giveaway, there are two steps.

1) Leave a comment on this post, saying how you first heard about Alphabet Soup magazine.

2) Send our editor an email quoting a favourite first sentence in a children’s book you have read, and the book it is from. (Children’s book must be suitable for readers under 12.)

Note: this is not a random draw, we will choose the entry with the first sentence that makes us want to read (or re-read) the book in question!

Some fine print:
We are only able to post the prize to Australian addresses. You are welcome to enter if you live overseas but you will need to nominate a lucky friend or relative in Australia to receive the prize.
Competition opens at 3am on Monday 17 October 2011 and ends on Friday 21 October at  11.59pm. (Times as per Perth, Western Australia)
We will email the winner asking for an address where we can post the prize. If we do not hear back from the winner by 28 October, we will award the notebook to the runner-up of the competition.
Notebooks and pens were purchased by Alphabet Soup’s editor. We have no affiliation with the brands or stockists and have received no incentives from these companies. (Our editor just went out and bought notebooks with inviting-looking covers.)
No correspondence will be entered into regarding the winner. Our decision is final.
