Issue 5 will be arriving in your letterboxes from 16 November. We love the bright and summery cover – it was designed by Kate Larson, winner of our design-a-cover competition!
We received many many excellent entries and choosing a winner was very difficult. We thought Kate’s cover was eye-catching, we loved the kids on the beach, and the design left room for the Alphabet Soup logo and a few words about what’s inside the issue. Congratulations Kate!
So, what will you find inside the upcoming issue?
- Q&A with Christine Harris, author of the Audrey of the Outback series.
- Meet an astronomer, Peter Birch.
- Stories, poems and book reviews.
- Kids’ writing.
- Summer writing competition (win a $20 book voucher!)

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.
Sally Murphy has reviewed Alphabet Soup magazine on her Aussie Reviews website. She gives us a positive plug! The Aussie Reviews site reviews ‘the best of Australian books, films, music websites and more’. We’re proud to be up there with ‘the best’! 🙂
(Please note that the web address she has quoted for the magazine is incomplete and should read www.alphabetsoup.net.au.)
Keep writing – and don’t forget, there’s still time for children aged 10 and under to enter our first writing competition. Entries close 21 November 2008!
