Hot Key Books has launched a free interactive writing project, “Fleur Hitchcock’s Story Adventure”, which is aimed at children aged 7-11 years, to help author Hitchcock write the sequel to her novel SHRUNK!
The project will run between 21st January and 13th May 2013, and will be hosted on a secure site through www.thestoryadventure.com. Children can register to take part from 11th December, read Hitchcock’s prologue for the book and put forward ideas for the title. Hitchcock will then post her first chapter on 21st January 2013 and invite children to answer questions and complete off-screen activities.
The best ideas will be incorporated into the following chapter, with a new chapter uploaded every Monday until 13th May 2013. The final book is due for publication in January 2014.
