Write a book in a day

Write a Book in a Day is a fun, creative and collaborative competition for school students in Years 5 to 12 and adult writing groups. Teams of up to ten have just twelve hours to write and illustrate a book from start to finish. To make it even more fun, unique parameters must be included in the story. The completed books are donated to children in hospitals across Australia. 

Tech has two Year 10 teams compete annually, spending from 8 am to 5 pm in the library to create the story and accompanying artwork. All money raised goes to The Kids' Cancer Project.
