The KalliKids Short Story competition 2015
The competition is for children in key stage 2 (years 3,4,5,6) throughout the United Kingdom. It's a great way for children to have fun and get creative writing a short story based on the theme 'Shine'. The competition will be judged by KalliKids ambassador and international bestselling author Joanna Rees.
The winners in each category will get their book published in hardcopy as well as an e-book and the four schools with the most entrants will win a creative writing session with Joanna Rees.
"I loved writing stories as a child. Getting encouragement and feedback set me on my path to become a writer. That is why I am so delighted to be supporting the KalliKids Short Story competition". Joanna Rees.
