We’ve just launched a really exciting writing competition for key stage 1 & 2 children. Local author, Maxine Mallen’s new children’s book “Maggie The Wonder Dog” is on sale via Amazon and some Waterstone’s outlets and she’d like your children to get involved. All we’re asking you to do is get your children to write a story. The story has to be centred around being trapped. A great opportunity for your kids to use their imagination and win some really great prizes. It’s open to children aged between 5 and 11 years, and the winning story will be published in the Staffordshire Newsletter. They will also win a £30 Waterstone’s voucher, signed copies of Maxine’s books, a goody bag with pens and t-shirts, and Stafford FM will also throw in a nice prize too.

Entries must be with us by midnight on the 17th January 2014. So there’s a bit of time to get working on this. Once you’ve got your children to complete their story, make sure they put their name on it, their age, which school and year they are in, then send it to: Stafford FM, Suite D, 1-3 Mount Street, Stafford ST16 2BZ.

    Maxine Mallen is a lover of hot chocolate with marshmallows (the tiny pink and white ones) and a hater of tomatoes!

    She loves to write children's picture books and truly believes that with a bit of hard work, self belief and determination that dreams can come true!
