Soundworks are running another of their short story competitions. Entries can on any theme and submitted from anywhere in the world and be up to fifteen minutes long. That last bit is because the prize is to have your story recorded and made available for people to listen to on the site.
There's no charge to listen, or to enter. Previously published stories may be entered and it's an
interesting experience hearing your story read in this way (I know as I'm a previous winner).
There's just a few hours left to enter this competition, but as they only want 100 words, you might manage it. (Note - now closed)
Seagulls are noisy birds, aren't they? Have you heard the racket they make whenever the feel the need to protect their young?
