Thank you so much to everyone who entered.
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.
The KalliKids team are now hard at work reading through and posting all of your fantastic stories.
So if your story is not online yet, Don't fret it will be on its way.
Keep checking back in to find your story.
And in the mean time come and check out the stories posted so far.
Once your story has been received we will publish them up in our Submitted Stories page for your friends and family to see and for your child to be proud of their ''published'' story.
When entries are closed, we will shortlist our favourites in each category and give them to KalliKids ambassador and international bestselling author Joanna Rees. She will then select her favourites in each category to be awarded a hardcopy and e-book of their story.
The four schools with the most entrants in each category by the closing date of the 8th of June will be awarded a creative writing class with Joanna Rees.
