Thanks to Sharon Boothroyd for passing on the details of this free to enter short story competition. You're asked tho write a story of up to 2,000 words on the theme of '16 and 17 year olds'. (It's fine if you're that age yourself, but not if you're younger. There's no upper age limit.) Unpublished writers only.
The prize is 'expert advice and feedback from a top literary agent' and 'writing goodies'. I expect there will be useful publicity too.
Were you an awkward teenager? I spent a lot of time doing daft things in order to hide the fact I was very shy. I've now got absolutely no idea why I felt it was so important to hide that terrible secret.
