Philip Catshill (philipcatshill) | 2 comments Can I submit a story which is already in my portfolio (on this site) with a slight modification to suit the title


Simon (Highwayman) (highwayman) | 4698 comments Can you get it down to 200 words?


message 17: by Philip (new)

Philip Catshill (philipcatshill) | 2 comments I'll work on it, but it has been on Goodreads before. If I can get it down to 200 words, I'll submit it.


Simon (Highwayman) (highwayman) | 4698 comments You can all relax . I always come last!


Simon (Highwayman) (highwayman) | 4698 comments Can I just mention here that Authors are very welcome to take part in the competition but non-authors are equally welcome. This is just a bit of fun and a chance for us all of us to get a bit creative!

When you whirl your closet, can you put it on u-tube? Bound to go viral.

Luccia Gray | 9 comments Such an inspiring prompt! I'm sure there will be tons of entries :) Just sent in mine via PM. Looking forward to reading the others. Will we be able to read all, or at least some of the entries?

Have a look at some of the previous competitions! :-)
