Laugh-a-Riot

Devyani Borade is a writer and cartoonist who's running a couple of competitions for humourous writing and cartoons

*Verbolatry Laugh-a-Riot Contest 2016*
Send us your funnies about writing, and win £100!
Entries are now being accepted for the Verbolatry Laugh-a-Riot Contest. Humorous essays and cartoons about writing/publishing.
Deadline 31 August 2016. Two categories, free and paid, with cash
prizes and publication. Details at http://devyaniborade.blogspot.com




Anyone can enter either competition. There's £50 prize for the free one and £100 for the one with an entry fee. If you think of anything hilarious which you can't work in to your entry, feel free to share it in the comments. Or even anything quite funny. Actually just slightly amusing or a bit daft will do.

Funnies about writing? Hah! I've got a few tales of disastrous writing attempts - probably funny to everyone else except me. :)

Any humour I write is usually unintended!

Misha Gericke said...

Awesome competitions, but I suck at writing humor.

I thought it was against the law to make jokes about writing?

Christine Howe said...

Thanks, Patsy. I escaped injury last week from a flying bag of potatoes. Amusing, only in retrospect!

Carolb said...

Like Liz young, any humour I manage is definitely not intentional...:D

Patsy said...

I did both thanks, Nicola.

Patsy said...

I've managed some jolly typos, Susan. Wonder if they'd count?

Patsy said...

I often intend it, Liz - but it doesn't always happen.

Patsy said...

It's hard to get right, Misha.

Patsy said...

Sometimes i feels as though it's compulsory, Oscar.

Patsy said...

Ouch, christine!

Patsy said...

You clearly take your writing seriously, Carol.
