There’s still time to enter the BBC’s RaW short story competition – the closing date for entries is 31 january 2008.
Would you like to run a story writing workshop? Take a look at the campaign partners area of the RaW website for lots of free resources and ideas to get you started, and to see some examples of stories already sent to us.
Stories must be written by an adult (18+), but kids can come up with the ideas and draw pictures to go with them. The competition is an ideal family learning activity for the New Year and a great way to show that anyone can write a story.
How to Enter
