There are a few rules in terms of what you can write as we want all entry's to be suitable for anyone to read.

  • No swear words, discriminatory or defamatory language
  • Nothing too scary
  • Ensure that everyone can read this without feeling offended etc.

But other than that - write what you feel and share your ideas. We can't wait to see what you come up with.
