Click on the title to go to a laugh-out-loud video featured on the STRICTLY WRITING blog. They are also organising a free international writing competition with a first prize of £300 for the winning story.
Each month for ten months they will showcase a story which will then be entered on the shortlist. The winner will be c be decided by a combination of 50% votes from the SW readership and 50% by the SW team. (Does that sound familar....?) Email your story to firstname.lastname@example.org but not as an attachment - instead paste the story into the body of the email.
The stories must be no longer than 2000 words, but can be on any subject.
Check out the blog for full details - that's important. I haven't put all the information here and the first rule of any competition is don't break the rules.
The shortlisted stories will be showcased here on the last Friday of each month, starting on Friday 30 April 2010
