Hi, my name is Cora and I am looking forward to reading and reviewing your stories. I am 8 years old, I live in Cheshire and I love to write stories, especially at school where we recently have been writing our own myths and legends. Some of my favourite books have been written by Jacqueline Wilson, Enid Blyton and I am currently reading the Harry Potter series by JK Rowling.
I will also share idea's and ask you to take part in writing competitions.
Lets get started with our first writing competition. To enter you need to write a short story around a theme, and this competitions theme is the Future.
To help you to come up with ideas for your story, you might want to think about what you think the future will be like. For example, will we have robots to do our housework for us? Will we have self-making beds and voice-activated door locks? I will be looking for stories that are exciting and imaginative.
The competition is for boys and girls aged from 6 to 8 years old and 9 to 11 years old. The story can be up to 800 words and the closing date is Friday 2nd September and winners chosen by Monday October 3rd. Winners will be chosen by myself and the Book Tales Team and they will receive a £10 book voucher. Winning stories will be published on this page.
I am looking forward to receiving your stories.
