Are you aged 12 or younger? Do you like to write stories, poems, plays, book reviews, or letters? Then we need you to pick up a pen and get writing!
We love reading kids’ writing and we are currently considering material for the ‘Write On!’ section of Alphabet Soup‘s May issue. If you’d like to see your work published in the magazine, you can visit the Alphabet Soup website www.alphabetsoup.net.au (click on the ‘writers wanted’ tab) and read the guidelines there.
As well as seeing your work in print, all children who have work published in an issue of the magazine receive an entry into a prize draw for that issue.
And we’ll be announcing our second writing competition in Issue 2 (due out in February 2009) so stay tuned!
