Special Writing Project – Week#7

This is the last one ūüôĀ

This week sees the last of the Special Writing Projects, arranged mainly for those of you in New Zealand and Australia. From next week you should be joined by schools from the USA and UK!

In order to still be able to take part, you must make sure you have subscribed to 100 Word Challenge. Many of you will have done that earlier in the year but do make sure you are signed up.


There was a very small showcase published this week as I did not get many nominations. You can find them HERE

Do make sure to send the ID of any great posts that you come across so that they can go on the showcase.

Hub news

Following my short survey last week, I will be setting up new hub arrangements from September, so do watch for the link and get yourself linked!

Last prompt

Here is the last prompt for the Special Writing Project and it is a VERY special one! It was sent in from Grant Peacock who is a teacher at Elm Grove School in New Zealand.

It is a Soundscape. So you click the arrow and listen. What can you hear? Where might you be? How do you feel?


The form will close on Saturday 3rd September
