Budding writers who are still studying in primary schools or secondary schools now have a chance to flex their yarn spinning muscles! Publisher Marshall Cavendish is organising the Budding Project 2009 for those who are just bursting to be a published writer.
The winners of this competition will have the unique opportunity of experiencing the entire publishing process, from editing and illustrating to printing, promotions and sales. A new addition to this year’s competition is the development of the winning works into digital versions of the books. Thus, besides the publishing process, winners will learn about the procedures involved in transforming their entries into digital books.
We invite participation from all primary and secondary school students in Singapore.

Of course, the adults also get a chance to show off their writing prowess. The Adelaide Review is also organising their first Annual Short Competition for unpublished works. Details here.
