Write a Book in a Day


Take the challenge for kids with cancer

Write a Book in a Day is an inclusive, creative competition with a difference!  

Teams of up to ten have just 12 hours to write and illustrate a book that will be uploaded to an online library for children in hospitals around Australia.

It’s the perfect activity for students in Years 5 – 12 and adult writing groups. Enjoy competing for awards in your division while taking on the more serious task of raising funds for childhood cancer research.
