Serial Mash Summer 2 Writers Competition

April 30, 2015, 3:30 pm

Have your pupils got weird, wild and wacky imaginations? Do you want to win some amazing prizes? Would you like to see your work published inside Serial Mash where it can read by millions of children and teachers around the globe!  

 

If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then you’re going to love the Serial Mash Writers Competition.

 

Sound good but not already a Serial Mash reader? Don't sweat it, you can try Serial Mash free for the whole of Summer 2.

 

Funny, and definitely a little bit crazy, children’s author Jonny Zucker has written the first chapters of two new Serial Mash books. But the problem is he’s got writer's block…

 

That’s why we need you to save the day and write the second chapter.  

 

Your pupils are free to express themselves without limits and let their imaginations run wild.

 

Submit your work however you want (through Serial Mash, by post, by email, on the back of a skateboard riding camel, it’s totally up to you) just make sure it gets to us by June 20th 2015. Click here for more information on submitting your work
