Win a masterclass with Melvin Burgess

Tracy Ann Baines reported today on her excellent blog, Tall Tales and Short Stories that Save the Children have teamed up with the best-selling author Melvin Burgess to launch a blogging conference where you can win a place on a masterclass run by Melvin Burgess himself. He writes brilliantly controversial teen-fiction such as: Bloodtide, Bloodsong, Nicolas Dane and Junk.

There are eight places to be won. All you have to do is attend the conference and write a blog post saying what you were born to do and why. The competition is open to all bloggers of all ages and genres.

The conference is being held at the Save the Children Head Office, St Johns Lane, London, EC1M 4AR on Saturday 26th February at 9.30am - 4pm.

To find out more details take a look at Are You Born to Write or, No Child Born To Die.

You can also create a Twibbon, like the one below, to express your support.
