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.
