Scriblist was founded by two British teachers to promote creative writing within education. The internet-based collaborative writing platform, Scriblist.com, was set up to give aspiring writers – particularly talented younger writers – the chance to become published authors. However, competitions are open to all. The Book Two competition is now open in 2008.

Five Green Bananas consists of five short stories. The stories are called; ‘The Witness’, ‘How do you solve a problem like Maria?’, 'The Kabul Case', ‘Under the Acacia Tree’ and ‘2050’. The book title ‘Five Green Bananas’ refers to the five stories and the amateur nature of the authors.

The collection addresses classic themes of love and death, friendship and family, social injustice and violence, but also talks to contemporary subjects such as autism, adoption, war and the impact of today’s carbon footprint on the future. The book title refers to the five different stories and the amateur nature of the authors at the start of the project. Five Green Bananas is available for purchase at scriblist.com and from other leading retailers ISBN: 978-0-9558725-0-1
