Turn up the music, turn down the drama!
For this Storybird Scribes challenge, we’re putting a new spin on poetry. A few months ago, we introduced you to the world of SpacePOP with our first fan fiction challenge. The stories were inspired by a YouTube and book series about five galactic princesses who disguise themselves as musicians and join the rebel resistance to vanquish the evil Empress Geela, who has taken over their home planets.
Here’s the latest episode — see all of them (and the music videos) at the link above!
The girls in SpacePOP use music to spread the message of freedom, hope, and friendship through the galaxy. Now it’s your turn. Remix the SpacePOP artwork on Storybird with original lyrics from their songs to create your own inspiring messages to send out into the world.
For the first time ever, we will be offering prizes to the challenge winner! The winner will receive a copy of Not Your Average Princesses, signed by author Erin Downing, and the official SpacePOP audio CD with recordings of all of the SpacePOP songs.
The winners will be selected by the SpacePOP creative team in Los Angeles and Storybird staff. Poems will be judged on creativity and originality—how you combine the lyrics and artwork.
Anyone with a Regular (not student) account can enter the challenge, but to be eligible for the prize you must live in the USA and be over 7 years old. Winners will be notified via the email associated with their Storybird account, and their parent/guardian must fill out a prize verification form before they can receive their prize.
