Whatever you like,

There's no theme for the current Writers' and Artists' Yearbook competition. Stories do have to be no more than 2,000 words, original and unpublished, but other than that you can do what you like. Entry is open to everyone and you have until mid February to come up with something. The prize is an Arvon course.

If you don't win, but fancy going on a residential writing course, you might like to consider this one.

I don't know about you, but I find the idea of writing about anything often leaves me thinking of nothing at all. I much prefer to have a theme, prompt or some kind of guidelines. If you're the same, then how about trying to combine the things in these photographs into a single story?

Yeah, no theme leaves it too wide open which would leave me blank as well.

There had to be cake somewhere. :D

Those stairs are definitely making me feel dizzy...

Fay Knowles said...

Thanks for this, Patsy! You are always so wonderful in sharing writing competition news with other writers.

@ Alex - knew it wouldn't be just me who felt that way.

@ Carol – there's always cake!

@ Fay – I do my best.
