Christmas Carol Competition

Thanks to Carol Bevitt for pointing out this competition. Amazon would like to us to 'reimagine' Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol. (Hmm, I can see why she noticed this one!) To take part you must be UK based and complete the story in up to 1,000 words.

Gosh. Add a modern twist to an entire novel and do it in a short story? Good luck with that. If you manage it, you stand a chance of winning a £2,000 Amazon voucher and a Kindle Fire.

    1. It does - but such a tight word count to fit it into.

  4. I've seen this everywhere, but this is for a children's story isn't it? That's me out.

    1. Children's stories are hard, aren't they? I've not mastered them.
