As part of the BBC Year of Books, the Chris Evans Breakfast Show wants to get the children of the UK firing up their imaginations and putting pen to paper, chisel to stone, quill to parchment, or just finger to keyboard. If you are aged 13 or under, you are invited to write a short story of 500 words about any made-up subject you like and send it to the BBC.
All the stories they receive will be read carefully. They will then will pick a Top 50 and invite them to watch the Breakfast Show being broadcast live from the Hay Festival in on Friday 3 June 2011.
They will also be giving the Top 50 stories to an expert panel of authors who will pick five finalists and an overall winner. So if you have lots of ideas and just love writing stories then why not enter now – hurry though, the competition closes on 3rd March!
All entrants will be entered into a draw and 25 names will be randomly selected to receive a pair of tickets to come and watch the Chris Evans Breakfast Show live at the Hay Festival on Friday 3 June 2011.
