Clear, concise and compelling?

Little Acorns are running a short story competition for pieces between 750 and 1,000 words. It's free to enter and there's a cash prize of £20, plus publication in their magazine.

There's no set theme, so I'll just pick a random photo from my 'writing ideas' file.

Umm, you don't need to know why I was researching toadstools. It's just a picture, OK? Don't go reading anything into it.

  1. I feel silly saying we don't do pay pal or any online transactions, so this really restricts me to what I can enter. Perhaps I'll draw the toadstools instead.

  2. I'll check it out.
    You don't need to know why I researched sea kelp, either.

  3. oh I hate those THREE STINKING WORDS.

    I'm editing my blurb for PERSONA KORY MAE. Harder than the dickens to summarize a novel in under 100 words.

  4. Looks like a pretty straightforward comp. Might give it a go. Thanks, Patsy.

  6. That link was working, but it isn't for me either at the moment. I'll try it again later.

    There was a contact email - mail@the-little-acorns.com

    2. Sadly emails are bouncing back too, Patsy. I not sure they are still functioning.
      Sadly...
