I was listening to Chris Evans the other morning, and they were talking about a competition they have for kids 13 or under. To write a 500 word story. http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio2/500words/2012/
I think this is a fantastic thing the BBC run, and if you know anyone 13 or under, or who is the head at a school, please point them to the site!
If we can encourage kids to read and write at a young age, then I’m sure the world will be a batter place. Focus their energy into something good and away from the bad in the world.
