We are all fans of story writing in our house and the children were really excited when they heard about this competition. The girls got especially giddy when they saw that Jacqueline Wilson was one of the judges. Its been like a story factory here this weekend, lots of ideas going back and forth and some really good short stories written. The competition is for children aged 13 and under and the deadline is March 1st 2012. They have to write a story in 500 words or less. Here is the link if anybody is interested 500 words.
