Sleigh bells ring, are you listening? I hope you are because here’s a new writing prompt!
Over at Between the Pages, I asked you what your favourite celebrations in literature were. So, as a variation on that theme, I’d love you to write me a story of 200 words or more about a party, festival or special occasion.
This by no means has to be Christmas-y! If you want to write about a summer solstice or the famous marshmallow jam making festival of Planet Sparkle, go ahead.
There is no deadline as such for these prompts but if you’d like it to count towards your chance of earning the award for a specific year, we’ll need it by the end of that school year. If you’re comfortable sharing, then post below. If not, email your story to us via hol.bookclub @ gmail.com (without the spaces). Oh and remember it’s a good idea to check through your piece carefully for spelling and grammatical errors as they make it harder for people to properly enjoy your work.
