Do you think you could write a book in just ONE day?!
Year 9 students Isla, Rosie, Kiara, Emma, Livya, Kaitlyn, and Edith have been deemed national winners after participating in The Kids’ Cancer Project’s Write a Book in a Day competition.
Schools and writing groups from all over Australia have been participating in this incredible initiative to write and illustrate a book from start to finish in just 12 hours as part of a creative and collaborative competition. Isla, Rosie, Kiara, Emma, Livya, Kaitlyn, and Edith commenced writing at 8.00 am and completed an entire book titled ‘Thief in the Themepark’ with illustrations before the 9.00 pm deadline. They were announced as the WA Best Middle School Book title before then also taking out the Middle School National Winner for Best Book.
This year marked the 20th year of the competition and has raised over $792,423 for kids’ cancer research to find kinder, better treatments.
Congratulations Isla, Rosie, Kiara, Emma, Livya, Kaitlyn, and Edith on your tremendous efforts. We wish to encourage our young and inspiring writers to SAVE THE DATE and register for next year! https://writeabookinaday.com/
