Fabostory- a writing platform for budding writers...
✯ What Is FABO? ✯
FABO is a free writing contest for kids! There'll be a new story to write every fortnight.
Submit your story before the closing date and you could win a prize! (Check with a parent or teacher before you submit).
Competition closes 5pm Friday 31 March
The story starters are judged by well known NZ authors (and it is all voluntary).
The beauty of fabostory is that you get feedback quite quickly- sometimes for sections of your work and sometimes for the whole piece.
