Summer Short Story Competition
August 16, 2012
It’s that time of year again, when WordWatchers turns its attention to short stories. Every six months, we compete in our own short story competition, submitting stories anonymously, voting in classic Eurovision style (‘nil point’ for your own story) and then attempting to guess who wrote what. Given that some of us have been in the group for quite a while, you’d think we’d be able to spot each other’s work… but that’s not the case, especially with people often using the competition as a vehicle for literary experimentation.
Previous competitions have chosen pictures, titles or themes, as you’d expect. This time, it’s the turn of ‘song lyrics’ – basically, choose a song, extract a few lines to inspire you, and write your story.
Entries were submitted at the July meeting, and we’re currently in voting mode, ready for the great reveal in September.
Tune in again to see who won!
