Good morning everyone hope you've had a good start to the week. I am just starting preparations for this years Write Path and am a little excited about it! Firstly the bad news - unfortunately due to various factors (ning starting to charge, my change of circumstances, postage etc) I am going to have to charge an amount of £25 per school to take part in the event this year. I'm really sorry about this as I didn't want to but it's unavoidable and hopefully it is a low enough charge for a school to pay. This will include one free copy of the book your paragraphs were published in naturally and a set of certificates if requested. The fee is payable on registering for the event (and I would advise you to do this as soon as you can - although we have more places this year I think they will be snapped up fast). You can do so in one of two ways, there is a paypal button on my website here http://www.bevhumphrey.com/the-write-path.html
or alternatively you can send a cheque, please contact me via the ning for the address. I can provide an invoice for those that need it, again let me know.
The Write Path will run over two weeks this year with 8 days being secondary (11 - 12 year olds) and 2 days for primary schools (10 - 11 years). Dates will be from 4th - 15th October and the 7th October will be a poetry day as it is National Poetry Day here in the UK, we will stick with their theme of Home. We will work with 8 schools a day the same as last year. I have already had 20 authors sign up and we have some very talented people as always ;0) . We will also have a video story again, I think that was very successful last year (not to mention hilarious) but I will run a separate event for comics at a later time. I won't advertise to other schools for a fortnight to allow previous entrants to have a head start - hope you will all want to be involved again this year - it's going to be awesome!
Any queries you know where I am - on the ning!
