Win a copy of Usborne’s Write Your Own Story Book

posted in: 2. Illustrators and Authors | 43

Thanks to the generous folk at Usborne I’ve got one copy of the Usborne Write Your Own Story Book to giveaway to one lucky reader.

This lovingly produced book is what inspired my short story yesterday. Ideal for 8-12 year olds, it’s full of tips on how to come up with story ideas, different perspectives to take on telling your tales, as well as lots of prompts to get your creative juices flowing.

Fun illustrations pepper the lined pages which are just waiting to be filled by your budding author. It’s certainly an inviting prompt to find a favourite pen and to sit down to enjoy stringing together words – a perfect gift in time for half term.

      Have posted this up on our year page on face book, so hopefully there will be some follow on posts from there.
      One of our briefs this term is the Macmillan Children’s book competition, so this would be a well timed arrival.

      Love your blog, always checking it out for tips and interesting illustrators.

      This looks interesting, especially if it helps get a little storyteller into a story writer – many thanks.
      I don’t blog, tweet or facebook but I’ve got everything crossed!

      My mini-me loves to write stories and hopefully when she is grown she will still enjoy writing as much as me.
