Get writing!

The BBC have launched their annual 500 words short story competition.

The competition is open to writers up to 13 years old. All you need to do is tell the best story possible in 500 words. What will you write about? Spaceships? Grannies? Cookies? The best day of summer? Snow day surprises?

Check out the BBC 500 words page here. You can submit to this brilliant national competition online. Check out the prizes up for grabs here too! You have until the 8th of March!

Once you’ve finished your story, you can submit it to a school-only competition too! Bring it down to the ILC where Mrs Lown will have a prize for the best one.
