So, if you’ve always fancied yourself as a writer and would like to share your stories, here’s the perfect opportunity. It’s simple, just:
- Write an original children’s story, of your own creation, between 600-800 words, which begins with the opening line:
“Once upon a Munch Time, there was a cow called Munch…”
- Submit your story and contact details using the form below
- Please avoid using well known cartoon and fairy tale characters other than Munch the cow
There are no limitations on what your story can be about; in fact we are encouraging you to let your imagination run away with you as this is the best way to create a wonderful, winning tale suitable for children aged between two and five years old!
We’d love to hear all about your story writing adventures too so we are asking entrants to also tell us (in less than 50 words) what was the inspiration behind their entry and why they should win.
