500 Words Story Writing Competition

I have been into all of your classes and worked with some of you and have been amazed at how great some of your writing is.


Why not get inspired and write a story. You can start now and have half term to work on your ideas to enter this competition?

There are 2 age categories:
9 and under and 10 – 13

It is important that you ask your parents’ permission to enter this competition but you will find all the details at:

500words.external.bbc.co.uk/opportunity/1 or on the BBC Radio 2 Website

Once you have written your story, if you would like me to read it, email it to:


I will read all the entries we receive and select the 3 best stories to also be entered for the Hertfordshire School Stories competition which is running at the same time. Details of this competition can be found at: www.knebworthhouse.com/education-at-knebworth-house/story-writing-competition

All entries have to be with the BBC by 7.00pm on Wednesday 26th February 2014 so you haven’t got long to get your thinking caps on!

Good Luck and I look forward to reading your stories!
