Join a HUB

During July and August, schools in New Zealand and Australia took part in the Special Writing Project. To help with comments they joined a hub. This is 3 schools linked together to leave comments on your 100 WC pieces once they are linked here. If you would like to join a hub and can leave some comments please fill out THIS FORM 


when you are commenting, you will come across some great posts. Please send me the ID number and name so that I can pop them in the next showcase. The latest showcase can be found HERE

Exciting advanced notice!

Next week sees celebrations of Roal Dahl’s birthday and 100 Word Challenge will be running a special Dahl prompt. Is your school celebrating? We would love to see some of your photos if you are dressing up! More news next week!

Latest prompt

The first prompt of the year is here at last. You need to really think about where you could take it. The prompt is:

…and I thought “well what a start”…

Things to consider:

  • What is beginning?
  • Is it a good or a bad start?
  • What has happened and what is going to happen now?

The link will remain open until Saturday 10th September
