Winner of the Home Imaginarium Competition

Our inbox was overflowing with entries for this competition and we read through some amazing action-packed, scary, mysterious and funny stories. You are wonderful creative writers.

We are pleased to announce that the winner of the Home Imaginarium Competition is:

MIRA CORRY, 11, Tasmania 

Judge’s comment:
‘Dinosaur in a Supermarket’ tells the (mis)adventures of two friends who find themselves in an unexpected situation. The story was well-structured, with effective use of imagery and language. I was particularly impressed with the story’s pacing, and Mira keeps the reader laughing from beginning to end.

Mira wins a 6-month Home Imaginarium subscription from Paper Bird Books, Fremantle, and an Australian children’s book creator will read this story live on Instagram.

Thank you to all the young writers who entered. We enjoyed reading your masterpieces! Please note that we cannot provide feedback on all your entries. (If you love entering writing competitions, check out the Comps for Kids page on Alphabet Soup’s website. Good luck!)
