Four days until 500 WORDS closes! Chris speaks to four of our fabulous volunteer judges - teachers and librarians across the country - who help us read EVERY single story sent in. Last year, that was 74,075 stories and over 30 million words! We couldn't run this competition without them and it's not too late to get involved. Visit to find out more.
