Write a Book in a Day

Write a Book in a Day Competition – 24 August
After the success of last year’s Write a Book in a Day competition – all of which was run remotely during lockdown – we are again looking for participants who want to take up the challenge of writing a book in a day.

A fundraiser for the Kids’ Cancer Project, groups of 4-5 students work together to create an engaging and original narrative – including illustrations! – in a 12 hour period. These narratives are not only entered into the competition, they also form part of an online library of stories for children to read whilst in hospital undergoing cancer treatment. All funds raised by competition participants through sponsorship go towards research into the prevention and cure of kids’ cancers.

Fitzroy High School’s 7-10 Campus will be participating in this competition on Wednesday 24 August, as part of our Book Week activities. Participating students will be excused from classes that day and will work in teams in the library, with the support of teachers.

If your child is interested in participating in this competition, please email Imogen at imogen.lazarus@education.vic.gov.au
