A FREE ENTRY WRITING COMPETITION OPEN TO ALL!
Details of the November 2016 Creative Writing Competition.
The topic for November has been set by the winner of the September 2016 competition ‘Lostinwords’ who has chosen HARVEST.
Lost writes as follows …
” … over the weekend I saw a folk duo (very good) and one of their songs was about harvest. And I thought, yes, the topic for November will be HARVEST. Anything to do with bringing in the sheaves; the social activities that surround it; narcotic harvests perhaps; an allegory about reaping what you sow. Anything as long as there’s some tenuous link to harvesting in some way.
Drink up thy zider and get writing!
The length of the story in November will be the regular “between 500 and 3000 words”, and competitors are reminded that multiple entries can be accepted, particularly of the shorter variety.
Closing date for entries will be Midnight on Wednesday the 30th. of November 2016.
The period for receiving votes will be announced when the competition closes, and votes will not be accepted until after the competition closes.
The “prize” for winning this November competition will be to set the topic for January 2017 when I am proposing that we will have a lower limit of 250 to 1500 words, giving an opportunity for some keen writers to make multiple entries.
After the competition closes there will be a vote to decide the first three places.
Just after the closing date, details of how to vote, and a vote collection point will be set up here in this competition section.
