Buzz Words Writing Competition

Writers are invited to submit the opening paragraph of a book for children from 9 to 14 years. The opening should immediately hook the reader’s attention and make him/her want to keep on reading. This means no backstory but language which is fresh, rich and original. Please give your story a title. Two prizes will be given, each of $50, for the openings which most pique the judges’ interest. Please mark your subject matter ‘Opening Paragraph’ and send your entry by noon, Tuesday 10 July to dibates@outlook. All entries will be acknowledged, and the two winners will be announced in 15 July issue of Buzz Words.

If you would like to enter this and other writing and/or illustrating competitions, you need to be a Buzz Words’ subscriber. Cost is $48 for 24 issues pa. Write to to get an obligation free issue
