FaBo Story 3 has now launched at http://fabostory3.blogspot.co.nz/ and we’d LOVE you to write with us. As it’s the beginning of the term and you’re all busy, we’re giving you a bit longer to write your first chapter and email it to us (deadline 27 July).
FABO STORY 3 begins with a letter posted on the blog on Monday 16 July – a letter that threatens to disrupt the biggest sporting event in world history – the TITANIC GAMES.
Who wrote the letter and to whom? Why would they make threats? It’s your job to write a follow-on chapter. YOU decide what the story is about, who the characters are, and what happens to them next. Write the next chapter in the story (up to 1000 words) and send it firstname.lastname@example.org in the body of your email (not as an attachment) by 5pm on Friday 27 July. The winning chapter will appear on Monday 30 July at the same time as a chapter by one of the children’s authors. From then on, every week is another episode in a big, dark writing adventure.
By the end, you will have used your imagination and sleuthing skills to figure out who the villain is and how to stop him or her from destroying the Titanic Games. Are you ready to compete? Let the Titanic Games begin!
As always, there will be prizes, so start working on your medal count now.
Go to http://fabostory3.blogspot.co.nz/ to read the letter that kickstarts your story about the Titanic Games.
GOOD LUCK. : ) Start reading, and start writing.
