BBC 2 500 Words writing Competition .

I have had the privilege of been asked to be a judge for the BBC 2 500 Words competition for the last few years. In 2018, my son and I were invited to be part of the live final at Hampton Court Palace where we sat through the live BBC 2 breakfast show with Chris Evans and Her Royal Highness The Dutchess of Cornwall.  We listened to some amazing stories composed by young writers read by David Walliams, Shobna Gulati, Jim Broadbent and Dara O'Brian to name a few and had the most amazing time. The stories were analysed by the Oxford University press to produce the Children's Corpus Summary Report to find the word most frequently used in the stories. The 2018 word of the year was 'plastic'.
