Why write a book?

The experience is an opportunity to develop literacy skills while working in a team and contributing positively to the community.

The published books are shared with children aged 10-16 years who are patients in hospital.

These books provide hours of entertaining reading for the children and the funds generated through the competition go to childhood cancer research.
