The 500 Words Competition

‘500 Words’ is the UK’s most successful short story-writing competition for children between the ages of 5 and 13.

It’s super simple. All entrants must pen an original story, no more than 500 words in length, and submit it online. It can be about ANYTHING you want – space-ships, grannies, insects, microwaves. The list is endless!

Stories are judged anonymously, without regard to grammar, punctuation or spelling.
