Mission Chaos |
Creative Writing Competition

Ideal for 11-18

Mission Chaos Video

From everyday life going wrong to world-altering events, the mission is to write a mini saga on the theme of chaos.        

The fun theme will capture your child's imagination and they can interpret it as they wish, allowing creativity and originality.  Check out the exciting video which introduces the activity; it's guaranteed to create a buzz!   

Your child will be captivated as they write for a real audience and with real purpose: for the chance to see their work in print. There are also fantastic prizes to be won for the top 5 writers and independent entrants are eligible to win.

The FREE resources will help inspire your child and get them writing:

💥 Model example stories

💥 Optional story starters to kick-start imaginations

💥 Activity sheet to get ideas flowing

💥 Story planning sheet
