Entries now open for the 2015 Young Authors Challenge

The Barfoot & Thompson Young Authors Challenge is back and kicking off for 2015.

The short story competition is open to Auckland and Northland primary and intermediate students and gives winners the chance to become real-life published authors.

All proceeds from the finished storybook go towards the Magic of Reading programme at the Starship Foundation.

This year's theme is "There's no place like home" and entries close on 3 June 2015.
