Enter the 400 Words Writing Competition

The Breeze radio station is running its very own writing competition for Kiwi kids aged 13 years and under.  There are two categories: 9 & under and 10 to 13. Entrants have to write a short fictional story of no more than 400 Words.  Your entry will go in the draw for $400 cash and books for your school library (1 x prize for each category). Selected stories will be read by well-known Kiwi’s, and the two winning stories by TV3’s Hilary Barry.

Two of our previous Star Authors are judges – Melinda Szymanik and Maria Gill.  Check out their Star Author posts for writing tips to help you with your story.

Entries close on 27th September so head on over to the 400 Words Competition page now and submit your entry.

    hi, my daughters are really interested in taking part in the story writing competition. We had a few enquiries. Can they submit more than one story. We are in wellington, can they still take part in the competition. How are the stories to be submitted-do we need to post them or is it online and can they illustrate their stories.
