Chelsea you are hugely welcome. I thought your school was rather inspirational too! Let me know how you get on with your writing, and do make sure you enter my competitions – the next one will be posted shortly!
Thanks Chelsea for your lovely comment! I loved visiting your school and hope to see you all again sometime in the future! Keep up the great reading and writing and I’m sure you’ll be publishing your own books one day!
Hello Catherine. It’s easy to enter the competition – just click on the Clever Competitions page above, and it will tell you all the rules for entering. You still have till the first week of June, so I look forward to receiving your entry soon! Thanks for writing!
Hi Sarah! at school we are doing a Y6 exhibition…. it’s so tiring!! we only have 3 weeks to get all the TRUE research and make the presentation without ANY help!! my teacher says it’s the assessment of all assessments! (im currently finding some info)
P.S my exhibition topic is waste if you were wondering (every group has to have a topic)
Hi Gabriel – it’s lovely to hear from you and I’m so glad you enjoyed my visit! I’ll be posting details of my next competition just before Chinese New Year so keep visiting my blog and I’ll post all the information shortly!
Sarah, I am a student in Diocesan Girl’s Junior School. I still haven’t handed in my reply form for ordering your books, I know I am very late. Can you please tell me your address so I can post it to you. Please reply me at my email. Thanks.
Hi Sarah, so lovely to see you again at the restaurant after all these years!!! I’ve really enjoyed exploring your website and smiled at the description of your childhood home – I can remember hearing the distinctive calls of your peacocks across the paddocks! I’m teaching at the Cottage School in Bellerive, next time you’re in Hobart it would be lovely to catch up 🙂 Kath

Thanks Benedict for your lovely post! The very best way to become a successful writer is to read and read and read, lots and lots of books! And to practice writing, as much as you can! See my Top Tips to Become a Writer at the top of my blog for more ideas!
Hi Sze Long, just read your story which I thought was great! But you’re right, it did miss some vital ingredients from my Clever Competition page so I’m glad that you noticed that and will be submitting a different draft into the competition. Well done you for checking what was needed! I look forward to your formal entry!
