SOS Sagas: Trapped Video

SOS Sagas: Trapped is here to get your child excited about writing as they create their own thrilling mini saga - a story told in up to 100 words.

Empower them to write enthralling tales using tension, suspense, and atmosphere. The inspirational story starters will help them kick-start their ideas and they'll be buzzing to create their own original mini saga. They could become a published writer, seeing their work in a real book!

Mini sagas can use a story starter or be your child's own ideas - all work entered must be their own work.

There’s a fantastic video that introduces your young writer to the activity in just 1 minute! It’s guaranteed to create excitement, banishing boredom and lets you enjoy seeing your young writer engaged!
