Writer's Competition August

July has come and gone, and the August competition is coming up in two weeks time.  It will be an opening line competition -- and I have already got the line that your piece has to start with. Nope, not going to give it away -- not yet. It will be made public on 15 August. So watch this space, or sign up to remind yourself to come and have a look on the 15th.

For those who decided to take part in the July competition, you still have until 15 October to submit your short story.

Happy writing!

July Competition: Subject

The subject for the writing competition is FRECKLES. Be creative! You may use the word at least once, but not more than three times in the story.

Competition closes on 15 October 2011. Please forward your entries to me, in time, so that you won't miss the deadline.

Happy writing!

The subscription feeds at the bottom should now be operational - my apologies for those of you who had tried before when it wasn't activated.

July Competition

After a few thought provoking minutes, inspiration struck and I have come up with the subject for the writing competition that starts tomorrow. I will post it here for all who wants to write along.

Remember that we will also need people to act as independent judges. If you are busy with another writing project and feel up to reading some new and good stuff, give us a shout and then you can be a judge for the July competition.

Don't forget to visit tomorrow to start taking part in this exciting project!

Creative Writing Competition

The first installment of the competition will launch on 15 July 2011, with a short story on a subject to be released then. The story can be in any genre, with any POV, as long as it complies with the submission requirements of language, format and layout. The objective is for novice writers to write towards a deadline with a prescribed subject or opening line. If you are interested in taking part, and you are not part of the RHS Feb 2011 Writers group, please send me an email and I will forward the rules to you.

We also need judges to help out - please let me know if you want to judge the first installment instead of taking part in the writing section.

Remember 15 July 2011 - subscribe so that you can receive email notification of the start of the project and the subject.
