Hey guys, just a quick one to let you know about Jo Fletcher’s awesome competition. It ends at midnight (GMT) on Sunday so you’ll need to get your entries in soon but it shouldn’t be too difficult because the goal is to write a 140 word horror, science fiction, or fantasy short story in conjunction with National Short Story Week. Easy, right? The details and entry form can be found here.

This contest is open to UK residents only but if anybody outside of the UK fancies trying their hand at writing a 140 word story and leaving it in the comments you would be very welcome! I don’t have any prizes, sadly, but it’s a bit of fun. And hey, you can always count it towards your NaNoWriMo word count if you’re taking part.

As for the UK entrants, there will be 3 winners with the chance of winning A Book of Horrors and The Emperor’s Knife, which both look amazing! Winners will be announced on the Jo Fletcher blog the following week.


Good luck!
