Mini-Writing Contest # 5 -- July 30 to August 4

July 30, 2014 | Christine | Comments (11) Facebook Twitter More...

Hey everyone! Welcome back for Mini-Writing Contest Number 5. :)

To start, let me ask you a few questions. Where do you like to keep things? Do you have a special place where you hide the things you want to keep forever? Is it out in the open where everyone can see, or is it hidden in a place that only you can find?

Listed below are ten containers that can be used to store things. Pick one from the list, or make up your own, and write down what kinds of things you would place inside of it.

Goldfish bowl
Golf bag
Pencil case
Cardboard box
Rubber boot
Coffee cup
Lunch box
Steamer trunk

The items inside the containers can be anything you’d like, big or small, real or imagined, and you can name as many as you want. So, what kinds of things would you keep?

Please keep in mind the following contest rules:
1. You have to live in Toronto to win this contest.
2. You have to provide a valid e-mail address so we can contact you if you win a prize (see privacy statement for more info)
3. Your entry must be submitted by Monday at 11:59pm to be considered to win.
4. Winners will be announced the following Tuesday.

Have fun!

Your name, your e-mail address, the books you read and your thoughts about them are your personal information.
