Holly’s Fun Corner: 500 Words!

Get writing!
Get writing!

I am writing this post for Holly’s Fun Corner because I thought you might want to know about Chris Evans’ 500 Word Competition. It is a great competition and all you have to do is write a story of 500 words or fewer. I have entered a ghost story into the competition!

Here are some of the rules:

– You can’t write over 500 words

– You have to be under the age of thirteen

– You can’t submit more than one story

– You can’t copy someone else’s story

– You can’t enter as a pair with someone else; you have to be on your own

The deadline is the 26th of February 2014.

You can also find out more details on the website:

So get writing!



Childtastic Books started out as a collaborative blog, written by me and my young daughter Holly. Now she's nearly a teen, she's off doing exciting and new things but I am still here, reading, writing and reviewing books for children and young adults of all ages. I miss her input but I hope she will pop in from time to time to do some guest posts! A little about me - I have just finished an MA in Children's Literature from the University of Roehampton (result pending, eeek) and am a part-time primary school librarian. The other part of my time is spent writing and editing, my own work and others, and I am waiting for my first non-fiction book to be published - a teacher resources pack for Handa's Surprise. I welcome comments and love to hear from visitors to this blog. Please note though that, because of time constraints, it is rare that I can read and review books from self-published authors. I receive so many requests and feel badly about not being able to keep up with them all. Thanks for visiting! Sam
