WriteOn is an annual writing competition open to all primary students in Years 1 to 6. Using a photograph as a stimulus, students are asked to compose an imaginative piece of writing.
The competition provides primary students with the opportunity to become published authors. Outstanding entries from last year's WriteOn competition have been published in the Best of WriteOn anthology. This year the competition is being held in association with the State Library of NSW. The presentation of certificates will be held at the State Library of NSW on 16 September 2015.
Entry details are on the BOSTES NSW website.
