There’s nothing better than reading a thrilling story, one that grips you so tightly and puts your senses on alert simply through the power of words. Spine-Chillers is a fantastic way to get your students writing in this way by using tension, suspense and atmosphere – the optional lesson plan covers these techniques and more. Inspire students to create their own original mini saga, a story told in just 100 words, and become published writers!
To make sure your entries are valid, please follow the rules listed below:
Only one entry per student, there is no limit to the number of entries per school.
Mini Sagas can be on the entry form or an A4 sheet of paper or typed.
Mini Sagas must be your students' own work.
Ensure that all students include their name and age on their entries.
Mini Sagas must be told in no more than 100 words (the title isn't included in this)
