Today sees the launch of BBC Radio 2s 500 words 2016 short story competition for children under the age of 13.
The judges are looking for original, exciting and wacky stories from children from age 5 upwards! The judges include Francesca Simon, Malorie Blackman and Charlie Higson – all Inkpots favourite authors.
At Inkpots, we will be having time during all of our sessions to talk about the stories for those those children wishing to enter – we think it’s a great opportunity to do some really interesting writing. The closing date is 25 February.
