New FREE Writing Competition for Kids

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 :)
