The Age MS Readathon Ultimate Story is a writing competition for Australian students from Prep to year 11. Well known authors start the story, then it is over to students to write the conclusion. This year’s authors include:
Jen Storer – Tensy Farlow and the Home for Mislaid Children
Sherryl Clark – Out Australian Girl
Justin D’Ath – Mission Fox series
Dave Hackett – Unstoppable Brainspin: Seriously Useless Crime Stoppers
Entertaining students with zany twists and turns, Ultimate Story gives writers the chance to share in more than $2000 in prizes, join a team of professional authors and have a student’s final chapter published in The Sunday Age!
