While I couldn’t visit Melton City Libraries as planned (thanks, Covid), I could whip up this video to help aspiring entrants kickstart their creativity.
The short story competition is a great opportunity for budding writers of all ages to showcase their talent and have their work read by popular authors.
Entries can be submitted in any medium: text, print, illustration, video, verse, voice or combinations of any of the above. Entries should be no more than 3000 words for adults, 1500 words for junior and teen, or for other story formats, something that takes no more than 5 minutes to experience.
The competition will award the first, second and third prize entries in Junior, Teenage and Adult sections. Entries are now closed.
