We love stories! And we’re inviting you to make up your own, as part of the
Stepping Into Stories Kids’ Lit Fest
The theme this year is 'ALL ABOARD!'
- whatever that means to you!
A new departure? A journey of discovery? A daydream that takes you somewhere imaginary? A camel ride? A piggy back? Perhaps your story will feature an epic train journey? Or maybe it will be a story about how you are feeling as you travel through different situations? Or it could be about a journey through time and space!
It can be funny, an adventure, fantasy - anything you like.
If you're excited and what to be part of the competition, here's how to enter
Create Your Story!
All you have to do is create a story with the theme of 'All Aboard!'.
You can make your story in any way you want to - drawing, writing, comic strip, drama, poetry, rap, digital animation - just as long as it fits on the entry form below. Or if it’s a film or recording, make sure it’s no longer than two minutes.
There are three age categories:
