Sound Good?

Now, take note and stay sharp. To score in this short story competition, you'll need to be in tune with the judges. Win the £100 prize and you'll be singing for joy.

Helen Yendall is offering a great prize for someone 'relatively new to this writing lark'. Entry is easy, so do have a go if you feel you qualify.

  1. Thanks for the info, Patsy. I've got an idea for a jazz story but I don't think I'm going to make the deadline! But I see that this is a regular competition so I've bookmarked the site and perhaps I'll enter next time.

    1. I sent a non musical one, but I do have an idea for a music based story, so might try that another time.

  4. Love the picture of the bell! I won't admit how long I've had my nose pressed to the screen trying to read the writing on it x

    1. It's the peace bell at the Church of Christ the King in Messina, Sicily, Teresa. It commemorates the dead of WW1 and weighs 13t. (These facts given to distract from the fact I can't tell you what it says)

  5. I will definitely check out the competition. I am basically a nonfiction writer, but I would try my hand at fiction. Thanks.

    1. Most competitions do seem to be for fiction, JJ. I'll post links to any non fiction I see though too.

    1. I quite like having some kind of theme to work to, Rosemary. It helps get the mind working, I think.
