For Victorians we are in Term 2 already after hosting the Commonwealth Games in Melbourne. My family was lucky enough to get tickets to a couple of events and thoroughly enjoyed them.
I still receive so many entries based on sadness, death and war. I am sure there are many topics one could write about. The stories are written brilliantly but the topic is not for all age groups who read this magazine. So your entry may be discarded because the topic is not appropriate. Also, if you write about a purple horse with three legs (as an example) illustrations are most welcome to accompany the story. As a suggestion for a topic in your next creative writing adventure why not use some of your own adventures or heroes and create a fantasy story/poem out of it. Or consider the topic of our CEO Miranda’s article of a person you would look up to as your hero.
Hazel Edwards has written an article discussing ‘HOW TO CREATE A BOOK COVER’. We also have an article by Lorraine Wilson titled ‘WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR IDEAS?’. Our Author Patrons continue to give us some great insight into getting started, writing skills and getting work published.
KEEP ON WRITING!
