This competition from Hodder is for short stories about love. By 'short' they mean 5,000 to 10,000 words, but 'love' can be interpreted however you like.
If I come up with a suitable idea in time, I'll give this one a try. I've written much shorter love stories and far longer ones, but so far nothing within that range. It's good to try something different.
The prize is £150 and a two hour consultation with Emma Herdman - Sceptre's Senior editor.
Entry is restricted to UK residents who're over 18.
