We’re on the home stretch with issue 2 of Alphabet Soup – it will be out in mid-February! And we’ve finally put a sample of issue 1 on the website. So if you’d like a peek inside the magazine, go to www.alphabetsoup.net.au.
The writing competition for issue 1 has now closed. Thanks for your entries! We will start reading them all this week and will let you know the winners in January.
If you were hoping to pen something and just ran out of time, you can either keep an eye out for Issue 2 (out in February 2009) or send us something for the Write On section of the magazine (A poem, short story, letter or book review). Write On is not a competition but it does give kids aged 12 and under a chance to see their writing published in an Australian magazine! Go to the Alphabet Soup website for more details.
