Would you like to have a story published in a brand new anthology?

Are you aged between 8 & 18? 

What is an anthology? An anthology is a collection of writing (like stories and poems) and we are putting together our very own anthology written by you!

The Junior Writers Club is publishing their next anthology in Term 3, 2021 and we are looking for stories, poems, and pieces of non-fiction on the theme “There’s a Robot In My…“.

We are looking for stories and poems on the topic of ROBOTS!

Some ideas could include There’s a Robot in my…:

  • Classroom = Robot teacher
  • Fridge = Robot who makes amazing snacks
  • Bedroom = Robot who does your homework and cleans your room
  • Backyard = a pet Robot dog
  • Something else…

Be creative and be sure to have fun! If you are stuck for an idea, you can always contact us and ask for some help.

We look forward to receiving your entry soon.

If you have any issues with the below form, you can email your story as a Word document to
