I love FABO.
When do the competition’s start again in 2022
The FABO Story competitions will be back at the beginning of the second school term in 2022. (2nd May, 2022).
Kia ora FABO Authors,
I just wanted to comment and tell all of you amazing authors how much this website and it’s competitions mean to me. FABO has given me a platform to grow and develop in my writing skills over the years, and unfortunately, as I will be turning fourteen later this year I will no longer be able to enter the competitions.
Because of this I wanted to say a huge thank you to all of you, for the hard work you have put into Fabo and how much you have all helped me grow to become a better writer.
As I’m sure you know, there are not many writing competitions available for younger writers out there, so your site has become the perfect place for many young writers to learn how to tell better stories, and develop our creative storytelling skills.
So, thank you from the bottom of my heart for creating FABO and working so hard, and putting in so much effort in order to run and judge these competitions.
Ka kite ano
Hi Indigo. Thank you so much for your lovely message – it means a lot. The entire FABO team has loved reading your stories over the last few years. We’ve all been hugely impressed by your talent, and we’re certain you have a very bright future in front of you. We’ll miss reading your stories next year, and wish you all the very best with your writing.
Thank you so much!
Keep FABO going strong 🙂
Ka kite ano,
Hi Indigo, I’m Samantha, I’m 12 and I have allways loved reding your stories. I have no idea who you are, but I often see your name in the reports, for first place, or at least runner up. You have inspired me, and I want to see my name in the reports just as much as yours was! Thank you for showing me how awesome a kid’s writing can be.
Thank you so much for your lovely words – they made my day 🙂
Your poem about riding your horse was AMAZING and so beautifully written- I loved it!
I’m glad that you have enjoyed reading my stories; and I hope you continue writing and entering Fabo next year.
Who are the judges for the pop-up poetry challenge?
Elena de Roo and Melinda Szymanik
Hi if we send in a first one and then send in another one which one counts?
You can enter two poems, so both of them will count.
Hi can the prompt be in the middle of the text thank you
Yes. The poetry prompt could be the title, the first line, the last line, or somewhere in the middle.
Can I add at most 2 poems on the same acount?
Each person is allowed to enter 2 poems (at most).
How many people enter these competitions?
It’s different for every competition. Sometimes there can be as few as 30 entries, and sometimes there can be as many as 150 entries. We never know how many we’ll get.
Hi. Does our chosen poetry prompt (referring to the text ones) have to be featured in our poem as one of our lines or can the prompt be apart of a line? For example, does it have to be [my text] (next line) [poetry prompt] or can it be [my text] , [poetry prompt] (one line)? Hope that’s not too confusing. Thanks! 😊
The prompt can be a part of a line if you like. Just as long as it’s in there somewhere. 🙂
Hi, caan you let me know if we can use more than one story starter? Thanks 🙂
Yes, you can use a different one for each poem. (You’re allowed to enter two poems). You can also use more than one in a single poem if you like – it’s completely up to you.
Does it have to be a happy story/poem or can it be dark or sad?
It can be whatever kind of poem you want.
Can you just reload the page and enter more stories on a different account?
Each person can only enter two poems. Entering multiple times on different accounts is against the rules.
