A NOTE TO TEACHERS

I run these competitions for the enjoyment of kids who love to write.

Due to the hundreds of entries I receive, I’d appreciate it if you didn’t use this competition as a translation activity, or as homework for students who are likely to feel pressured or stressed by being forced to enter stories.

Thank you for your understanding :)

    Hi Dee,
    i am looking forward to participate in the ‘Fall Writing Competition’ can u make me understand the theme ”fall” . and can u please kindly tell me the email address. and i loved ur website

    • That’s great Tasneem.

      Fall can mean something falling or it can mean autumn. It could be a story that just has the word fall in it. It’s just a story prompt. Be free to use your imagination. My email address is dee*at*deescribe*dot*com*dot*au

      Happy writing:)

      You can email it to me. Please make sure you put Fall Writing Competition in the subject line of the email. I also need to know the name and aged of the writer and the name of the story.

      Thanks.

    Hi Dee

    I was just wondering does the story have to be about falls or is that just the name of the competition

    Thanks,Sadhbh

    • Hi Sadhbh,

      That’s the name of the competition. The story can be about anything to do with the word ‘fall’ and all of its meanings.

      Happy writing:)

      Dee

  7. I am very excited! :) I did not include the word fall in my story, though. I only included Autumn! I hope this counts!

  8. Dear Dee

    Can you plz tell me when you are going announce the winner I really want to know if I won

    • Dear Dev,

      I really enjoyed your story, but unfortunately it didn’t win this time. I sent you an email with your certificate on 4th August. If you didn’t receive it, please let me know and I will send you another one.

      Happy writing:)

      Dee

  9. Who won I can’t find it on the website

  10. Where is my certificate I didn’t get it yet

    • Hi Dev,

      I have emailed your certificate twice. As you have a school email address, perhaps your web administrator blocked the email because my email address wasn’t familiar to them, or perhaps my emails have been placed in the Spam Folder.

      Do you have another email address I can send your certificate to?

      Happy writing:)

      Dee
